The City of Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department is seeking the public's input on a new playground and shelter at Scott Park, 540 S. Scott Boulevard.

The Scott Park picnic shelter and playground are scheduled for renovations in 2020. The intention is to replace the shelter with a design specified in the 2017 Iowa City Park Master Plan. No changes are anticipated to Rita's Ranch Off-leash Dog Park, trails, athletic fields, stream bank, or parking lot.

The public is invited to look at three proposed playgrounds, and give the Parks and Recreation department their feedback on which they think is best. An online public input form is available on the City's website.  The public is asked to send their feedback by Friday, Aug. 23, 2019. 

The three playground design options can also be viewed online.
