Florence Recreation Fields

Florence Recreation Fields is located on Meadow St. and Spring St., Florence.
The City is using $100,000 of the "Our Common Backyards" grant here, as well as $25,000 from the CPA, for a total of $125,000.
The project includes design, the playground equipment, safety surface & drainage, phase 1.
Most of the project will be done the Fall of 2014. 

This playground is going to be built in phases, with areas for both ages 2-5 and 5-12 year olds.  Below are the concepts shown at the September 11 meeting.  Play and climbing structures are being considered, as well as swings, for phase 1.
A fundraising effort is underway soon for Phase 2 and beyond.
