Project Description

This project renovates and replaces the existing playground in Waring Station Local Park, located at 12215 Stoney Bottom Road, Germantown, MD.

Background

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.

Status/Project Update

Design for the project is complete.  Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2019 and last approximately 9 months.  Please be advised that the parking lot, playground and basketball court will be inaccessible during construction.  The rectangular field will be available for use.  On-street parking is available.
