Kindergarten Playground Update

Playground update! The Town has contracted Weston & Sampson, a landscape architecture firm, to create designs and gather feedback for new construction of the Kindergarten playground. There will be a Public Input Session at Peirce on March 26th at 6pm! Come see their initial designs and give your feedback! Right now the “Design Phase” is this Spring, “Construction Bidding” is over the summer and “Construction” is set for the Fall of 2019. The Town of Arlington has budgeted $200,000 for this project. We hope to see you there! Contact Katie Young at katie.kinnecom@gmail.com, or Megan Fitzpatrick at meg.m.fitz@gmail.com or Ms. Hartley for more information.
