New Playground for Lake Tye Park

The project to replace the playground at Lake Tye Park is wrapping up, with a dedication ceremony to take place on Thursday June 1st, 2017. 

In 2016 the City Council authorized 2017 Parks Capital Improvement Project (CIP) funding for replacement of the twenty-year old playground at Lake Tye Park, which is a listed project in the

Six-Year CIP of the Park Plan.  The playground has outlived its service life, replacement parts were becoming non-existent, and features were dated and lacking the inclusive, challenge and motion elements that the playground industry of today offers.  The Monroe Park Board reviewed the existing playground equipment at their October 2016 meeting.  Comments regarding the playground replacement included new active play features and improved ADA accessibility.

Design criteria established for the new playground include features that encourage multi-generational play, ADA inclusive play spaces that intentionally break down physical and social barriers to play, playful public art that enhances the visual appeal of the park, and advanced climbing challenges and motion activities that appeal to older children who seek a more adventurous play experience.  Surfacing improvements such as the use of rubberized surfacing is also part of the new playground design.

Join us as we celebrate the dedication of this exciting new play facility in Lake Tye Park!
