Project Playground rebuild to start week of May 28; volunteers needed for Community Build Aug. 8-12

May 24, 2018 – News

Construction to rebuild Project Playground at Twin Lakes is scheduled to start the week of May 28 and continue through September. Carver Construction, a contractor for the City and Borough of Juneau, will start mobilizing on site this week.

Please note that starting June 4, the west end of the parking lot and the Twin Lakes shelter will be closed for the duration of the project. The delayed closure is to accommodate Day at the Lake/Family Fishing Day on June 2. The restrooms will remain open throughout the rebuild, as will the beach/swimming access. The Twin Lakes walking path will remain open for most of the project, although construction may require slight detours. Please be attentive of other closures near the playground to accommodate various construction activities.

From August 8 to August 12, a large portion of the playground will be built by the community. This will require a lot of volunteer work and time. Please visit www.goprojectplayground.org to sign up for the community build, buy a fence picket to help fund playground improvements, or find more information about the project and the community steering committee.
