We were happy to receive the following email from Jackie Stanley, Community Outreach Coordinator with the Department of General Services (DGS). Looks like the renovation of Turkey Thicket playground is finally becoming reality despite some delays. As a reminder, the playground overhaul includes a splash park, picnic areas, revitalized exercise track with exercise stations, soccer field and an outdoor movie screen. Here is the email from Ms. Stanley:
Turkey Thicket Playground update: Construction is in the final stages for the new playground at Turkey Thicket. We anticipate removing the construction fence and having the playground and new parking lot available to residents the week of January 20th.Please be mindful that there are still a few minor renovations to the playground that will not commence until Spring 2014, such as landscaping. Also, the field and track will remain off-line until the Spring of 2014.Thank you for your patience during the construction of the playground and renovations to the parking lot. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
