Get ready to play – there’s new playground equipment at Quail Creek Park.
Starting Saturday, Merriam residents can enjoy the new, brightly colored playground. The park features cable climbing activities; a slide; a Volta spinner, similar to a merry-go-round; and a large swing that multiple kids can ride at the same time.
Over the next few weeks, crews will also install percussion pieces for children to make music, benches, new picnic areas, and sidewalk improvements for better accessibility at the park. Construction on the $75,000 project started on Aug. 30 with crews tearing out the old playground. They finished putting in the safety surface this week.
Quail Creek Park is located at 7024 Grandview Ave. and is a site for one of three Party in YOUR Park events each summer.
