The city of East Palo Alto is asking community members to choose a final design for a new playground at Bell Street Park, which the city will build in August in partnership with the YMCA of Silicon Valley, Mountain View-based retail savings company Coupons.com and national nonprofit KaBOOM!.
Residents can view and vote on the three designs in person through Monday, June 30, at 5 p.m. The designs will be on display at the East Palo Alto Library at 2415 University Ave. on Saturday, June 28, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday, June 30, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the city's fireworks show at Cesar Chavez Academy School (2450 Ralmar Ave.). Residents may vote in person at these locations or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (indicate option A, B or C).
After finalizing the design plan, the city will prepare for the project's "Build Day," during which community volunteers will build the 4,000-square-foot playground. In addition to addressing the city's shortage of playground areas, the project will transform Bell Street Park's open space into a play space planned with residents' needs in mind, organizers have said.
