The Stanford Recreation Capital Fund Raising Committee paid to have a full inspection done on the Sparc Park playground. I have attached the report and hope many of you will take the time to read it. We need to make a critical decision about trying to repair this beloved-hand-built-by-volunteer structure, or to replace it with a new one.
There are many factors to consider. Many of the recommendations that cite safety hazards come with the solution of replacement and or removal. Upkeep would be continual, and the treated wood that currently is in use does contain arsenic. Currently our playground is not A.D.A. compliant.
We need as much feedback from the community a possible. You can write to me at email@example.com and I will announce shortly if we are to hold a Public Hearing.
