Fox Chapel Neighborhood Park – Playground Renovation

Division:

Playground at Fox Chapel Neighborhood Park

Project Description

This project will renovate the existing playground and picnic area for multi-purpose recreation and leisure uses while providing accessibility and stormwater management.  Fox Chapel Neighborhood Park is located at 19129 Staleybridge Road, Germantown, MD.

Background 

The existing playground was installed in 1999.  It will be removed and a new playground will be installed.  Local park playgrounds are typically 3,500 to 5,000 square feet in size and include playground equipment to meet the needs of children from ages 2-12 and seating for caregivers.  Typical types of equipment include swings, play structures, and smaller freestanding pieces.

Status/Project Update

A virtual community informational meeting was held on June 2022. A survey was available for public comment in June and July. The survey is now closed – please see the meeting notes below for a summary of the community survey findings. With feedback from the community in hand, the concept refinement phase will begin. The proposed site layout will be shared with the community in the Fall 2022.
