Kid's Towne Renovation
Clinton’s Kid’s Towne Park, the 23 year old community built park, is getting much-needed upgrades to honor the contributions of those who gave. Clinton Board of Aldermen voted during the November 5, 2019 session to approve a new $240,000 play structure and to begin immediate renovations.
Kid’s Towne Park closed on November 6, 2019 to allow for crews to remove the existing wooden playground and install a new, modern ADA compliant and handicap accessible play structure. The park will re-open late January 2020.
Bark Park will remain open to the public during playground renovations.
“This park holds a very special place in the heart of our community as Kid’s Towne was a gift from many Clinton residents in monetary and labor efforts,” stated Mayor Phil Fisher.
The standard lifecycle of play structures is between 15 – 20 years, but Kid’s Towne has “brought laughter and memories for over 23 now. The renovations will add new life to the park with safer, more durable structures,” added Mayor Fisher.
The opening of the Bark Park adjacent to Kid’s Towne has brought new visitors to what is now Clinton’s most popular park. Renovations will reflect the additional foot traffic.
When it re-opens, the enhanced playground will include new slides, updated climbing structures and new interactive elements.
Additionally, the new play structure will allow better sight lines for parents and children utilizing the updated park that rests beneath the natural shade structure.
Renovations will begin immediately. The first phase will necessitate the removal of the existing play structure and preparations for the new installations. The new playground is anticipated to be installed in the beginning of January.
To continue the legacy of Kid’s Towne being a community investment, plans are to involve the residents the opportunity to be a part of the new installation.
Those interesting in registering to assist with installation should call the Clinton Parks and Recreation department at 601-924-6082.
