The playground at Gulley Park is getting an overhaul.

The area will close on July 14 for an improvement project that includes new playground equipment with swings, a tot area, a ping pong and chess area, an interactive fountain, a pavilion, new landscaping and other amenities.

The improvements are expected to cost around $1.4 million, and are funded in part by a $220,000 grant from the state.

Fencing will be placed around the area, and it will remain inaccessible throughout construction, officials said. The restrooms at the park will remain open.

The project is scheduled to be completed in early 2024.
