City of Detroit representatives Brad Dick, Alicia Bradford and Tim Karl met with us at the park Friday afternoon, and I’m happy to report that construction on a new playscape at Fletcher Field commences on Tuesday.
The initial plans are attached here:
As of now, six pieces of equipment are included in the plan: swings, a see-saw, two climbing apparatuses, a “Supernova” (a merry-go-round of sorts) and a grill.
Additionally, Mt. Olivet Cemetery will be refurbishing the picnic tables at the park and helping to secure two new tables that were constructed by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America youth group.
