The Northwest Recreation Center’s playground improvements will focus on ADA accessibility and the installation of a new accessible play equipment. In addition to the play equipment, the surrounding landscape will also benefit from the new solar lighting, nature playscape, seating blocks, improved site drainage, mulch, and other site amenities such as recycling trash cans and a bench. This project is in the construction phase. District 7
