After reviewing public input regarding the Ped Mall playground, the project steering committee and Parks and Recreation Commission agreed to a final Ped Mall playground design. More than 550 people responded, providing their input to help create this exciting space. All responses received are available for viewing at Construction is planned to take place in early spring of 2022. 

The Ped Mall playground project play equipment has been ordered. The equipment selected was chosen to increase the level of accessibility to the tower structure, add toddler swings, and refine the City of Literature elements.

The new tower will have stair access to all levels and features a lively architectural design that fits well with the downtown area. Purchase of the new equipment has moved forward to facilitate installation in the spring of 2022. The final design is available to view online.
