Gage Park Playground Community Update:
Further to staff discussions this morning, I can confirm that the rubber surfacing is being installed right now. The rubber is temperature sensitive and the colder overnight temperatures prior to Monday precluded the install of the rubber.
The crews expect to finish the base layer today (see pictures attached from just now), and depending on the weather Thursday and Friday, will hope to finish Monday or Tuesday. This is a very expensive product and must be installed correctly to be safe, warrantied, and so the City has the correct lifecycle for the investment.
Please note that the rubber and the equipment has to be safety tested before it can be legally opened to the public. This will be done ASAP next week after the rubber is completed. Then the fencing will be removed and it will be opened to the public.
I ask that you please continue to be patient, and soon it will be opened and available for all to enjoy.
Details on our official community celebration and park opening to follow shortly. Thank You.
