The County Board is set to vote on the funding of the project during their next meeting on Saturday, Feb.22. The proposed allocation is $904, 383, with $82,216 set aside as a contingency.

“The overall project focused on five elements: playground equipment and safety surfacing, paving and access improvements, circulation and accessibility, reforestation and landscaping, fencing and site furnishings,” staff said in a report.

A map of the planned improvements shows there will be two play areas(one for toddlers and another for 5-12-year-olds), a new swing set, a seating area, and new fencing will be installed along with railings, ramps, and walls to improve accessibility from the streets and to the park trails.

The far east end of the park, past a grassy open area, is planned for reforestation.

The plans for the park were endorsed by the Arlington Forest Civic Association last April.
