Simplified: Four Sioux Falls parks will get new playground equipment this summer. Here's a look at what to expect.
Why it matters
- The new equipment is part of the city's cyclical replacement programs, and it'll cost about $500,000. Funds come from the Parks and Recreation department's capital improvement program.
- The new playgrounds will have the newest industry play features and accessibility standards, according to a news release from the department.
- Old equipment removal started Tuesday, and the entire project is expected to be completed by July.
