For Immediate Release
Palmer Park Playground Complete
The New Inclusive Playground at Palmer Park is Complete
Township of Scugog Council and staff are excited to announce the completion of a new inclusive playground at Palmer Park. A grand opening will be planned for the spring of 2023.
We would like to remind residents that there is no maintenance of playgrounds during winter months and snow and ice may build up. So, please take extra care if you choose to use a playground and do so at your own risk.
The project is part of the revitalization work identified in the Waterfront Action Plan. The new playground provides an inclusive space to bring children and youth from the Township together in a safe, outdoor setting that will provide both physical and mental health benefits.
The Township of Scugog is very grateful for funding from the Government of Canada, through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund, for making this project possible.
Last spring, we received significant feedback and suggestions from the community and this information was used to develop the new playground design. The new playground is nautically themed and includes:
- Rubber play surface
- Junior Climber with accessible ramps and Rock’n Ship
- Senior Climber with 8’ slide and monkey bars
- Quiet Grove
- 6 Swings
- Spinning Climber
