Just in time for summertime play dates, Wallingford playground is opening on July 4th. We’ve been following the renovation of the playground since November of 2018 when construction first started. Construction was delayed in winter due to bad weather.
According to the Parks and Recreation website, the latest construction delays were due to the wood fiber surfacing delivery and installation. That will now happen on Saturday, June 29th. Once that is completed, the final construction and installations will be completed, and the playground will be open for business on July 4th.
There will be some fun happening next week though. The wading pool is scheduled to open up on Wednesday, June 26th. The wading pool will be open Wednesdays through Fridays in the summer, 6/26-8/16, from noon to 7 p.m.
