Pinicon Ridge Park, new playground coming this summer!

Posted:1/30/2019 Linn


The Linn County Conservation Board has approved the final design for a new playground at Pinicon Ridge Park- riverside area .  This concept was guided in part by general playground/park trends, staff suggestions based on current playground usage within our Linn County Conservation areas, and input from a ​public survey this past October.  This ADA accessible and inclusive playground will include a rubbery "poured in place" surface which ​also d​epicts a painted imaginary river.   Trees for shade will also be planted after construction.  Linn County Conservation will prepare the site this spring with installation and completion of the playground scheduled for early summer.   The Linn County Conservation Board wants to thank the public for their inpu​t on this exciting project.

Linn County Conservation is in the design phase of a playground redevelopment project at Pinicon Ridge Park. This area, often referred to as the "day use" portion of the park, is located on the west side of the Wapsipinicon river. The original riverside playground was first developed in the late 1960's with several features added and removed over time.  This area will be replaced with a new ADA accessible and inclusive playground that will include a rubber safety surface.   A new restroom is currently under construction in this area near the Riverside shelter. 

Linn County Conservation is seeking the public's input to assist in determining the best playground for the park.

Sample concepts and designs are included in this survey, however no decision has been made on the type of playground that will be constructed.   This survey will be online until October 26.  Thank you for your input.
