Upcoming Playground Projects for Summer 2017

Sabrooke Playground and the Tot Area of the Sinnissippi Riverfront Park construction projects are planned for summer of 2017.

Sabrooke Playground Renovation

The Sabrooke Playground Renovation project was awarded an OSLAD grant. The project features a new playground on Rockford Housing Authority property to relocate and replace the existing playground on ComEd property. Work also includes a new drinking fountain, a new spray pad, new asphalt pathways, a new basketball court, new chain link fencing at the existing ball field, a new picnic shelter, and new community garden plots. Construction is scheduled to begin in May and be completed in late summer. The construction will not impact the summer playground program.

The project includes a new 2-5 year old playground area, playground surfacing, and pathways. The playground installation will be completed through a Community build event on May 13. Site construction will begin in late April and be completed in June.
