Family Terrace construction set to begin

September 27th, 2012 · 6 Comments

The children’s play area at Maple Leaf Playground is about to get a serious makeover.

Starting this week, construction fences will go up at the park as work begins to build the new Maple Leaf Family Terrace, which will be part of the new Maple Leaf Reservoir Park.

Donna Hartmann-Miller, who heads Friends for a Greater Maple Leaf Park, writes on the committee’s Facebook page that construction could take from four to seven months, but that the new play area should be ready for kids to return by next spring.

Take a look at what you can expect to see at the new Family Terrace, and here is more general information about upcoming work at the park.

UPDATE: In an email newsletter (which you can sign up for on the Community Council website), Hartmann-Miller notes a few nearby playgrounds for parents to visit while Maple Leaf Playground is under construction:
