As the Town continues to research options for improvements to the Playground on the Common, a couple of new and viable alternatives have become available.

Below are some photographs of a project completed in Ithaca that offers some positive benefits. If you look closely, the project also features rubber matting which the Town plans to include in the new toddler section planned for the playground.

The company that built the Ithaca project also directed us to the playground at the Charlton Heights Elementary School. This playground is similar in style to our current playground. In recent years, the playground was refurbished by replacing the real wood from the original construction with “plastic wood.” The plastic wood in the up close pictures is gray in color. By strategically replacing the worn sections of wood with the new material, it has resulted in a marked improvement.
