- ·new playground equipment;
- a new concrete walkway;
- a new picnic area with a gazebo;
- ·new landscape plantings;
- ·new fences – perimeter and interior; and
- solar cell phone/tablet charging stations.
The total cost is expected to be approximately $468,000 and the project is anticipated to be completed by Labor Day.
Representatives of the Greenlawn Civic Association requested the playground improvements, working with Town staff in the Departments of Engineering, Parks and Recreation, and Planning and Environment as well as the Town's EOSPA Committee to develop a playground plan that reflects the community's needs.
The Town Board designated up to $525,000 in EOSPA-recommended Environmental Open Space and Park Improvement Funding for the project in January 2020. The project was bid in January 2021, the Town received 12 bids, and the Town Board awarded the construction contract to the lowest responsible bidder, Greenlawn-based Turf Tek USA in February 2021.
