The scope of work for the 2013 playground renovations involves furnishing all of the required labor, materials, equipment, implements, parts and supplies necessary for provision and installation of Frontier Park Playground. Frontier Park playground is a part of our capital improvement plan and will be bid out as a part of the first phase (1A) of the Frontier Park Master Plan and is estimated for completion in Summer 2013, pending Park Board approval.
Two community meetings took place December-February 2012 seeking input regarding the playground renovationsplanned at Frontier Park. Notifications were sent to park residents via mailings, signage, press release, and website. After receiving input on the playground equipment preferences and design plans, the equipment vendor for Frontier Park has been selected (see initial equipment design).
