  Park Improvement Updates
marlin park plansMarlin Park Playground Renovation
The Marlin Park Playground Renovation Project continues to move forward at an “ahead of schedule” pace. As the concrete
work is being completed, the contractor will then work on playground equipment installation, install fibar, add fencing, install
site furnishings, complete irrigation, soil prep, and then planting. We were targeting to complete the project in mid-August,
but if things continue to move as they are, we’ll look toward a July completion date. Here’s hoping!
