YORK – The playground that is currently at Mincks Park will soon be moved to the area in front of the community center, to make way for the all-inclusive playground that is coming this year.
This week, York City Council approved bids to move playground equipment and to surface in the area near the community centre.
The accepted bids were both from Dostals Construction Company – the same contractor who installed this playground at Mincks Park in the first place.
Bids were $68,238 to move it and $51,940 to resurface its new location.
By installing the playground equipment on the community center property, “virtually all York residents will be within ½ a mile of a park, which was one of the goals of the 2017 strategic plan,” said noted York City Administrator Sue Crawford.
The pitch will be thrown in April for the very large all-inclusive Peyton Parker Lane Playground at Mincks Park. This move will find a different purpose for existing equipment – and ensure that every inch of play space in this area of Mincks Park is completely inclusive.
