Welcome to our project page! Here, you'll find information about projects going on the park and how they may impact your visit. Plus, you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to keep one of America's biggest urban parks open, operating, beautiful and accessible!


Woodland Discovery Playground - Temporary Closure
Play will be on pause and the Woodland Discovery Playground is temporarily closed as we replace the safety surfacing in the playground!  This special project will replace the rubber ground cover, which will enhance your child’s play experience. 

Why are you closing the whole playground?
Safety first! This will also allow the work to be done faster, getting you back on the playground sooner! 

Why now?
The safety surfacing can only be installed in certain weather conditions, and hotter temperatures are ideal. 

How long will it be closed?
Like any outdoor work, this project is weather dependent, but we hope to have this space opened in time for playing in slightly cooler temperatures.
