Main Playground Sunshade Construction Update

We’ve received permits from the City of Concord to move forward with construction of our main playground sunshades. The sunshades are a six-post, five-shade sail design as seen in the drawing. Over the next few weeks the contractor will manufacture the poles and shades, dig holes in and around the playground, pour concrete, set the poles, and finally attach the shade sails. The main playground will be closed intermittently – we’ll be sure to let you know as early as possible when it is unavailable. If you have questions, please contact the Business Office.
