Arlington Res playground to be rebuilt


Aiming for removal before beach season; access limited

UPDATED, May 14: Work on updating the Reservoir playground continues. This work is in conjunction with the Phase 2 Reservoir renovations, which will include a new playground.

As a safety precaution the reservoir access will be limited during demolition and removal of the equipment. 

In an earlier notification, the town mistakenly reported that the playground would be replaced before the beach season. It should have read, the playground will be removed before the beach season. 

An update will be posted when the new playground is open

As a safety precaution the reservoir access will be limited during demolition and removal of the equipment.
