READY, SET, PLAY! Crews with Southeast Outdoor Solutions begin to erect the new playground equipment at Jasper City Park on Monday. It should be complete later this week.
Work got underway on new playground equipment at Jasper City Park on Monday afternoon, June 22.
A representative of Southeast Outdoor Solutions on site said they hope to have construction completed by Thursday, depending on weather. The substrate will be
“Engineered Wood Fiber” that is water absorbant, splinter resistant, and that meets ADA accessability guidelines.
Earlier this year, Jasper City Council approved purchase of the new equipment not to exceed $55,000. The old wooden playset was torn down in March.
Plans are to replace the equipment at the playground for younger kids near the tennis courts later this year.
The new set features two ADA swings in addition to two baby swings and other elements like slides, a rock climbing wall, and monkey bars, according to an artist rendering.
