Kensington Park - South Playground Replacement


October 29, 2013 - As part of the City's commitment to park renewal, replacement of the playground at the south end of Kensington park is underway. Plans include a new expanded playground with swings and new playground surfacing with increased safety and universal accessibility. Improvements at the site also include installation of a mini-shelter, picnic table, trash receptacles, a bike rack and 2 benches. Removal of the existing playground occurred in early October, 2013 and installation of the new playground and improvements is planned to be completed in mid to late January, 2014 (weather dependent of course).

The project is a positive example of community support and has been significantly enhanced by a donation from the Guadalupe Charitable Trust in honor of Paul David Rodriguez, one of the City's Latino sons who grew up in the Kensington neighborhood and was killed in the Vietnam War on April 5, 1966. In addition to the private donation, the Kensington neighborhood also received a Neighborhood Improvement Grant to aid the project, and LiveWell Longmont is donating a bike rack for the site. The City would like to thank everyone involved in supporting the project.
