September 15, 2022 PLAYGROUNDS UPDATE: We have been seeing some posts about Summit’s playgrounds and appreciate that the community values them as much as we do at the DCP. We are thrilled to tell you that over the past two years we have been working on playground design plans for Mabie Playground, Memorial Playground, Washington Playground, as well as the potential for a new East Summit Playground.
There is a playground development plan in place – as a local government there needs to be a capital budget request to do these types of renovations and repairs. The implementation will span over several years and is slated to begin with Mabie Playground.
This past summer, the DCP Advisory Board and City staff visited some NJ Parks and Recreation award winning playgrounds and provided feedback to engineers who will create the designs. Once the plans are finalized, we will share them with the community. Looking forward to some fun changes in 2023!
