Project Description

This project renovates and replaces the existing playground in Newport Mills Local Park, located at 11201 Newport Mill Road, Wheaton, MD.


The existing playground will be removed and a completely 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 to 12.  Typical types of equipment include swings, play structures, and smaller freestanding pieces of equipment such as spring rockers or spinning elements.
