Brooklyn Park - News Flash

Demo/Site Work Starts Next Week Followed By Installation Through Early October

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-July 13, 2023-A new state-of-the-art playground structure and several park improvements are coming to Brooklyn Park this fall. The city’s contractor Duckels Construction Inc. will begin removing the existing outdated playground structure next week to make way for new equipment, as well as sidewalk and landscaping improvements in the park. 

“Brooklyn Park is a very popular and highly utilized neighborhood park”, stated Parks & Recreation Project Manager Aaron Stafford. “As the oldest playground currently in our parks system, we are excited to revitalize this area and provide new and unique play opportunities for our community”. 

Demolition of the existing playground structure is expected to start on Monday, July 17 and will be followed by additional site work and prep through the end of August. As the project begins, the playground will be closed, and the site will be secured with fencing for public safety. 

The next phase of the project sees installation of the new playground equipment, as well as several park improvements. Crews anticipate completing the project in early October, pending no major delays or weather issues. 

The new playground will offer increased play opportunities, with a strong focus on ADA play features to benefit the community. The playground will include a 2-5 age group play area that is independent from the 5-12 age group area. The playground structure is being manufactured by Burke Commercial Playgrounds and includes numerous state-of-the-art play features. 

In addition, the project will include installation of a new water/energy efficient irrigation system, and a new sidewalk through the park connecting Agate Street directly to the playground. 

With this closure, the community is encouraged to explore other city parks and playgrounds that they may not be as familiar with. The Howelsen Hill Beach, Little Toots, and West Lincoln Park playgrounds are fun options for all ages and offer a wide variety of amenities for families to enjoy.
