New pieces of playground equipment arrived at Optimist and Huntington Woods parks this month and a third structure is on the way for Starr-Jaycee Park.
Greg Rassel, director of Public Services and Recreation, unveiled the plans for a large play structure at Starr-Jaycee Park at the Royal Oak City Commission meeting Monday.
The $64,122 purchase will be entirely funded from Arts, Beats & Eats parking revenue. More than $67,000 from 2012 Arts, Beats and Eats parking revenue is now in the Parks Improvement Fund, Rassel said.
The new equipment will replace the wood structure at Starr-Jaycee Park, which is badly in need of replacement due to age and wear.
