Playground Renovation Projects - PlayCore and Game Time Grant

The City of Davis announced that it is one of several cities in California selected to receive a grant sponsored through the California Park & Recreation Society (CPRS), PlayCore and Game Time.  The $147,000 grant is part of a $2 million statewide healthy initiative and will help align research based best practices to create high quality play and recreation environments.

The grant will be used toward equipment replacement at the following playgrounds:  Cedar, El Macero, NorthStar Mini, Oak Grove, Redwood, Village and Willowcreek Parks.  Many of these playgrounds have not been updated in over 20 years, and require updated play features on more recent play philosophies.  In addition, adult fitness apparatus will be added to El Macero and Village Parks.  Construction of the new playgrounds is anticipated to take place from January to March 2020, pending weather conditions. 

Feedback on the proposed projects and color options was concluded in October 2019.  The new equipment was ordered in November and was delivered to the City in late December.  The installation contractor has visited all sites and is currently developing the order in which the playgrounds will be demolished and re-installed.  When the installation timeline is confirmed, it will be shared on this site as well as through the respective NextDoor neighborhood and City Facebook accounts.  Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in January through March 2020, weather permitting. 

The links listed below are the final renderings for each of the playground locations. For more information about these projects, please contact Anne Marquez, Community Services Supervisor at (530) 757-5626 or via email at
