Popular Playgrounds to Get Improvements

Youth Center PlaygroundWith thousands of children utilizing Cape Coral’s playgrounds on a monthly basis, there is bound to be wear and tear over time which can lead to safety concerns. To combat this issue, the Parks Division is currently in the process of replacing old equipment and/or resurfacing three of the City’s most popular playgrounds located at the Youth Center, Yacht Club and Four Freedoms Park.

Construction of these new playgrounds will begin on August 31 at the Youth Center and will be completed one at a time, with each location taking approximately 2-3 weeks.  The Youth Center and Yacht Club playgrounds are expected to be completed by the end of September and Four Freedoms’ new playground should be done by the middle of October.
