Construction of Elm Street Park Inclusive Playground Set to Begin September 2022

ARROYO GRANDE, CALIFORNIA - On August 23, 2022, the City Council approved a contract with Central Coast Playgrounds to construct the Elm Street Park Inclusive Playground Replacement Project, PW 2022-02. 

 

In September and October 2022, Central Coast Playgrounds will remove the existing playground equipment, removing and replacing portions of the surrounding concrete sidewalk for handicap accessibility, installing all new inclusive playground equipment, and preparing the site for the installation of poured-in-place rubber surfacing.

 

During construction the playground area will be fenced off and portions of the surrounding sidewalk will be closed to pedestrian traffic for safety purposes. During construction activities some parking stalls in the Elm Street Parking lot will be labeled as “No Parking”. Normal work hours will be between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

 

While this much anticipated project will provide an inclusive playground for people with diverse abilities and ages, it may cause temporary inconveniences. The City appreciates the community’s patience during the construction period, and will attempt to minimize these inconveniences. Please contact the Recreation Services Department at (805) 473-5474 for any special needs or concerns that should be considered during construction. For general questions about the project, please contact Sheridan Bohlken, Recreation Services Director, at (805) 473-5478.
