We’ve been two parks down in Wallingford for the past few months: Dump Park, the play area given to the neighborhood by the city as a bride price for the Transfer Station renovation work, has been fenced off for the past couple of months for ADA compliance work. Likewise, the playground at Wallingford Playfield at N 44th St and Wallingford Ave N has been closed for complete replacement since November.
Good news for the kiddos on both fronts. Dump Park has mostly re-opened, with just some temporary barricades around the basketball hoop and benches until the hoop is reinstalled and a couple of benches are raised. Otherwise, have it.
Over at Wallingford Playfield, I spotted this activity over the past few days. The signs say that the project is supposed to wrap up in March, which we are almost half-way through. I don’t know if they’ll make it, but it’s nice to see some real progress being made.
