The Campbell City Council has approved funding for park renovations. There are two play structures that will be renovated, the tot-lot (2-5 yrs) and the school age (5-12 yrs). New facilities will fit within the existing play area footprints and are subject to current safety standards.
The City 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 considered a number of conceptual designs 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. Comments from the Commission have been incorporated into a revised conceptual design. See the slideshow below.
The project was presented and approved by City Council on December 6, 2016.
The Project was advertised on December 14, 2016 and bids were opened on Tuesday, January 24, 2017. The bid summary can be seen here.
G&G Builders Inc. has been contracted by the City of Campbell to demolish and remove existing playground structures, and install new play equipment, protective surfaces, wood fencing, and playground safety signage. The play area will be closed and fenced off during construction.

March 2, 2017 Work is scheduled to begin on March 14, 2017. At that time the play area will be closed and fenced off. The remainder of the park, including pathways and grass areas, will remain open. Construction is anticipated to be complete by June 1, 2017.
