New playground opens at Baldwin Park

A grand opening for the new playground equipment installed at Baldwin Park will be held on Wednesday, April 22 at 10 a.m. For many years, the preschool programs located in the park made good use of a play structure that eventually reached the end of its useful life. The new structure, shaped like a ship with sails, ladders and bridges, has been pre-tested by the preschoolers and pronounced a success.

The project was made possible by a grant from GameTime, the playground's design and manufacturing firm, and Measure Q, the half-cent sales tax extension passed by voters in the November 2014 election. In the coming year, residents will see extensive Measure Q road repair projects moving forward, thanks to a $22 million infusion of leveraged funds that will start to address the City's back-log of street and road projects.

Baldwin Park is located on Parkside Circle. For more information about the Baldwin Park playground grand opening, contact Sarah Jackson, (925) 671-3118.
