The Campbell City Council has approved funding for park renovations. The City of Campbell Public Works Department is in the planning stage of updating the play structures at Jack Fischer Park, with construction anticipated to be complete by summer 2017. There are two play structures the City is planning to renovate, the tot-lot (2-5 yrs) and the school age (5-12 yrs). New facilities must fit within the existing play area footprints subject to current safety standards. Each structure has multiple play components and the City has some flexibility in how to configure future structures.
The City has just concluded conducting a three week public outreach program to solicit input from park users. The outreach program had both social media and personal contact components. Results of the outreach can be found here (http://www.cityofcampbell.com/683/Envision-Campbell-Forum) under the “Closed Topics” tab. From the public outreach, Public Works has been able to compile a comprehensive representation of Jack Fischer Park’s usage as well as what users would like to see in a new facility.
Public Works solicited conceptual designs from multiple playground designers and selected one that most closely addressed the needs of the site including the responses collected from the public survey. The conceptual design was presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission on November 2, 2016. The Commission provided their comments to city staff and the comments have been incorporated into a revised conceptual design. See the slideshow below.
The project is scheduled to be presented to City Council for approval on December 6, 2016.
Construction Start: Spring 2017
Construction Complete: Summer 2017
