Project Description

This project renovates and replaces the existing playground in John Haines Neighborhood Park, located at 25000 Oak Drive, Damascus, MD.


The existing playground will be removed and a completely new playground will be installed in its place.  Local park playgrounds are typically 3,500 to 5,000 square feet in size and include playground equipment to meet the needs of children from ages 2 to 12.  Typical types of equipment include swings, play structures, and smaller freestanding pieces of equipment such as spring rockers or spinning elements.

Status/Project Update

The playground is currently in the design phase. The final design will be posted when it is 100% complete.

Calendar and Meeting Notes

Schedule for the calendar is currently being developed. Links to review meeting notes and presentation materials will be attached to each applicable calendar event as it is scheduled and completed.
