The finishing touches are now complete on new playground equipment and upgrades to Choate Park, located off Third St., between Lumber Ave. and Barkman Ave.
The new equipment includes a climbing structure, slide, and balance beam. New swings have also been installed and a pea gravel surface complete the park. Final landscaping will take place as weather permits.
The park upgrades are part of the City’s playground renewal program. Each year, money is put aside and used to enhance neighborhood parks. The upgrades to Choate Park cost approximately $25,000.
