East Street Playground Tot Lot, Coniston
Before: A bench, picnic table, swing set and play structure were all found to be in poor condition and in need of renewal in less than five years. All playground equipment was removed.
After: Residents told the City of Greater Sudbury they wanted a fitness focused playground design with structures that encourage climbing, swinging, sliding and physical fitness. Most requested park amenities were shaded rest areas, picnic areas and benches.
The new playground structure is geared to ages 18 months to 12 years. It has two slides, an exciting variety of climbing equipment, activities for tots and an accessible feature. Two new benches have been added as rest areas.
Installation of new play structures and a new ground surface consisting of engineered wood fibre were completed on November 28, 2018. Grass areas will be restored in the spring 2019.
