More details on the playground re-build at the park

From the City of Hamilton:

The play structure at Gage Park – one of the city’s largest and most loved parks and a key destination for Hamiltonians and visitors alike – is undergoing a $200,000 replacement that will improve accessibility and encourage physical, sensory and social interaction for all play areas users. The Gage Park play structure replacement is the largest planned for all City of Hamilton parks this year.

The play structure has been designed with inclusive play goals in mind, which will combine many unique play features so that children of all ages and abilities can play together while challenging their individual play levels. The play area ‘foot print’ will remain the same, however all of the components will change and include transfer stations, stairs and ramps to provide users of all ages and abilities ease of access throughout the play space and to elevated play areas. Additionally, the play area also has many ground-level activities that will stimulate and encourage group and inclusive play. The play structure replacement will also include the introduction of rubberized safety surfacing in the main play area.

The work is set to be completed by the end of November.
