The swing structure at Wilson Park in Fayetteville is set to be replaced with a new swingset which will include a toddler swing and one ADA accessible swing.

Construction of a swing replacement project will begin Wednesday morning, Sept. 21 at Wilson Park in Fayetteville.

The project includes the demolition and removal of the existing swing structures, concrete, poured-in-place safety surfacing and sand. Afterwards, installation of a new swing structure and engineered wood fiber safety surfacing will begin.

The new swing structure will include ten belt swings for ages 5 and up. Additionally, a toddler swing for ages 2 through 5 and one fully ADA accessible swing will also be installed.

The project was approved as part of the 2010 Capitol Improvement Plan and is funded with sales tax funds.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in early November 2011.

From the news release:

The safety of the public during the construction of this project is of the utmost importance. Orange construction fencing, barricades and signs will be used to direct park users around the construction areas.

In related news, the Finger Park playground will be closed through Sept. 28 and the Salem Meadows playground will be closed Sept. 26 through Sept. 30 while surface tiles underneath the equipment are replaced.
