The Mercer Park playground will be closed temporarily from Monday, Nov. 13 to Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017, while crews install drainage tiles under the play equipment. The addition of these tiles will help the playground drain during heavy rain events. 

During the closure, Iowa City Parks and Recreation staff will offer free Tot Time from 9-11:30 a.m. at the Mercer Park Aquatic Center (MPAC). Tot Time is a fun, open play program for children ages 1-6 years, which runs 9-11:30 a.m., Monday-Friday throughout the year at MPAC. There are trikes, inflatables, toys and a Lego table. Come try it out for free during the playground closure!

Questions? Contact Parks Superintendent Zac Hall at 319-356-5100.
