Danville Parks and Recreation is in the process of replacing the larger play unit on the playground above Rotary Field located in Dan Daniel Memorial Park

“This project is a much needed improvement to one of our most popular parks in the system,” Department Director Bill Sgrinia said last week.

The play unit was installed during the park’s construction in the early 1990s and is home to thousands of imaginary castles, bridge trolls, games of tag, make believe space ships and slide adventures annually.

“We’re excited to install new equipment,” Sgrinia said. “We want every visit to our parks to be a positive experience and believe new playground equipment will enhance the adventures of our community’s kids.”

The installation project is expected to take four to five weeks. During construction, the climbing bolder, smaller play unit and shade structure will be open to the public
.
The new play unit will include accessible entrances allowing children with mobility challenges to access the structure. The colors and basic design elements were part of a public process where elementary school children from Forest Hills gave staff advice on what they liked in a playground.
