[box]Happy Spring! It feels like spring is finally in the air and that our kids will finally be able to spend some time at the Forest Hills Playground. As I think everyone knows, the park is slated for a major renovation and I thought everyone might appreciate an update:
The District’s Department of General Services is in the process of reviewing contractor bids. It is expected that contractor selection will be done this month. Construction is expected to begin in early June 2014 and be completed by September 30, 2014. Unfortunately, the playground will be closed during the construction phase, but the good news is that the park should be completed in time for us to have our annual Halloween party. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the mayor, DGS & DPR sometime this fall.
More details will be forthcoming as we have them. Enjoy the playground for a little while longer before the new, improved version appears this fall! Please also “like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/foresthillsplayground. [/box]
So now that spring is here at last, go play! Let’s get the most out of our playground before construction begins.
