This will add much value to the park. Been watching the work and happy it's finally done.

Here's hoping it doesn't get instantly tagged with graffiti and ruined by trash , empty beer bottles and drug paraphernalia like the old playground was.

it's not changing society, only new playground equipment.

Just pre-dreading the inevitable fate of nice things in public spaces.

So cool. Are there opening-closing hours during weekdays?

We checked out the playground last night, and it was great. There were several families out there enjoying the nice weather. Kids seemed to love the new playground equipment. There are plenty of benches for parents to hang out while the kids play.

Plus the views of the river are really awesome.
