Jack Fischer Park Improvements

The Campbell City Council has approved funding for park renovations. The City of Campbell Public Works Department is in the preliminary 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 replace: the tot-lot (2-5 yrs) and the school age (5-12 yrs). Replacement 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. We would like your feedback on current and future features. City staff will be at the park at the dates/times listed below to receive community comments.
