CITY CELEBRATES THE GRAND RE-OPENING OF
FIVE PARKS WITH ALL NEW PLAY STRUCTURES
July 16, 2019 – The City of Davis announced that it will hold grand re-openings for five city parks on Saturday, July 20, throughout the day. Play structures at the parks have been updated using City funding and a grant of $100,000 from GameTime, a playground equipment manufacturer. The updated parks have been designated as National Demonstration Centers for GameTime’s equipment.
The ceremony schedule is as follows:
9 a.m., Slide Hill Park, 1525 Tulip Lane
10 a.m., Covell Greenbelt #20, Baja Ave
11 a.m., Hacienda Park, 809 Hacienda Ave
12 p.m., Evergreen Park, White Sands Ln & Rushmore Lane
1 p.m., Arroyo Park, 2200 Shasta Drive
Refreshments will be served at each ceremony. Elected officials and parks commissioners will offer short remarks.
“Many of our park equipment play structures were aging, and we needed to update them using current building code and ADA compliance measures,” said Mike Webb, City Manager. “We hope the public has a great time exploring these new features in our parks.”
GameTime equipment is manufactured using the latest child development science and best practices for safety.
"Play brings people together from all walks of life, strengthens bodies and minds and provides a wealth of physical, cognitive and social benefits for children,” said Spencer Cheak, president of GameTime. “What the City of Davis has done with the revitalization of these five beautiful parks promotes a higher quality of life for the people who visit today and for generations of families to come.”
“Play provides essential benefits to communities to build healthier lifestyles physically and socially,” said Dale Sumersille, parks and community services director, City of Davis. “We are privileged to have received a grant from GameTime to help leverage general fund monies so that the City can provide healthy and fun playing experiences for our residents.”
