Council Approves All Abilities Playground Equipment

The City Council voted recently to approve the purchase of Play for All equipment and installation for Manuel Q. Salinas Park. The outdoor area located at 1354 Airport Road, will provide play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities. It's designed to promote healthy development of all children's physical, social, cognitive and sensory abilities. The playground gives all children the chance to play, grow and learn side-by-side. The equipment will be paid for through federal grants and should be installed by January 2017. Two additional phases of the park are expected to be constructed at a later date.
