New Pelham playground will undoubtedly rock
With a $20,000 grant and another $20,000 raised by the parks department, construction on a new playground utilizing the naturally rocky landscape at the park could be under way this spring. Parks and Recreation Director Brian Johnson said he hopes to see the project completed by the start of summer camp at the park.
“We want to keep the natural element,” said Johnson. “We have a more standard playground at Muldoon Park, and we want to keep the look natural here. The existing rocks are a magnet to the kids, and we want to incorporate those.”
The main feature of the playground will be the slide, however, which Johnson said will use many of the existing rocks at the park. He said children will be able to either climb up a ladder or scramble up the rocks to get to the top of the slide.
