Playground and Shade Structures Project

About The Project:
Provide annual funding to address playground replacement needs and/or the installation of either new or replacement shade structures. The site selection and preliminary design phase will require meetings with the Parks Board and possible on-site visits with Board members. Once the final design decisions are made and a vendor is selected it will take approximately 8 to 10 weeks for delivery. Installation will take 20 to 30 days.

Why Do We Need This?

The City of Bellaire and the Parks Advisory Board is dedicated to providing safe play features for the children of Bellaire. The 2015 Parks Master Plan identifies that all playgrounds should meet or exceed safety standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission Guidelines. The Parks Advisory Board voted to focus this year’s funds on Mulberry Park by installing a new playground and shade cover over the playground.
