A brief update on status of upcoming Phase II work on the Playground on North side between the Arch and Washington Square East:
-Surprisingly, no design or designer has been chosen for the playground which will be “enlarged” to 8000 square feet.**
-If completely renovated, the playground will be closed for one year.
-Will there be a temporary playground ? No determination yet.
-Parks Department (surprise!) would like to hear “what you want and what you need.”
-There will be play for older children where the “mounds” are on the Southwest side. (Not sure what that means for the curious “mounds” which I believe will be preserved.)

**What is the square footage now? It looks like some nice mature trees could be sacrificed with any enlarging of this space.
