Saratoga Springs, NY – The Department of Public Works recreation crew installed wood chips at the North Side playground today, Friday, April 28, 2017. The Recreation Department placed new playground equipment through an outside contractor as part of their plans to update the City’s playgrounds. DPW’s assistance was requested to help install the wood chips and final touches to finish the playground.
“DPW was more than happy to assist in the installation of wood chips to make sure this playground is safe. We’re also planning some upgrades to increase accessibility to the playground and for the neighborhood,” said Commissioner Anthony “Skip” Scirocco.
DPW is considering options to add a pathway or sidewalk in front of the playground. Residents who utilize the playground have indicated that accessibility is an important feature they would like to see added to the playground.
The North Side Playground is located at the intersection of Clement Avenue and State Street.
