Are there plans to replace the playground shades for Fairway Green Park that were damaged in the ice storm last year?

We are working through that right now. We have had quite a few problems with these shade sails over the years. We are asking multiple suppliers to review the design and engineering that is in place, to determine if a better solution is available. We currently have 2 quotes and options to choose from and are awaiting a third. As soon as we find the best solution we will move forward with purchasing them and having them installed.

I apologize for the delay.

Are there any updates on adding those shade sails to the park? With summer approaching curious if the park will be shaded this year.

The Parks and Recreation Staff went through an analysis of the existing structure with multiple shade sail vendors to identify why the previous sails continue to fail within a couple years of installation. Through this process the existing structure was deemed unacceptable to have any new sails attached due to itís the current condition. Staff has been working with a vendor who developed a concept that will work for this playground, and this concept and budget were approved by the Parks and Recreation Board in May. The Board voted to proceed forward with the design and installation of a new structure for the playground. Currently, Staff is working with the vendor to finalize the contract so they can begin developing the structural drawings and begin fabrication of the structure. Staff and the vendor are diligently working to ensure this structure is installed over the playground as soon as possible.
