This project renovates and replaces the existing playground in Waring Station Local Park, located at 12215 Stoney Bottom Road, Germantown, MD.
The existing playground will be removed and a completely new, 4500 square foot playground will be installed in its place. Taking inspiration from the nearby Gunners Lake, this playground will consist of three pirate ships doing battle as they try to navigate through rocky “waters,” represented by several play boulders built into the playing surface. The new playground will include equipment to meet the needs of children from ages 2 to 12 and will incorporate universally accessible equipment to include children of all abilities. A rain garden will also be constructed to treat runoff from the playground.
Construction is scheduled to begin the week of July 22, 2019, and last approximately six months. Please be advised that the parking lot, playground and basketball court will be inaccessible during construction. The rectangular field and trail access to Gunners Lake will be available for use. On-street parking is available.
Links to review meeting notes and presentation materials will be attached to each applicable calendar event as it is scheduled and completed.
