Construction season is officially here! We are installing a new theme park, adding dog waste stations to some theme parks, performing much needed landscaping for the new skate park, and retiring an existing playground.
Silver Run Theme Park- Temporary Closure
Location: Near Silver Run community garden, 3772 Gray Loop
Temporary Closure Start: Week of 9 May
Purpose: A number of updates to the surfacing will be made. The playground will be fenced off until all work is completed, at which point it will reopen. Please keep your distance from this location and do not allow children to play on this playground until fencing is removed.
Fireweed Playground 1- Demolition
Location: Near building 204
Demolition Start: Week of 9 May
Purpose: This playground will be demolished as we are unable to source replacement components to proactively address safety concerns and updated regulations. Please keep your distance from this location until demolition is completed.
Fireweed Theme Park – Installation
Location: Akutan and Sixth, JBER-R
Project Start/Completion: Summer 2022 (Delayed from 2021)
This 5400 SF Enchanted Forest theme park will be one of our largest playgrounds. The bright colors and blend of contemporary and classic equipment designs will be sure to entertain children of all ages.
JBER-R (Independence) Skate Park – Landscaping
Location: Dyea and 5th, JBER-R
Landscaping Start: Spring 2022
While the skate park opened last year, it was too late in the season to complete the landscaping component. Landscaping around the park will be completed this summer.
Dog Waste Stations – Installation
Location: Select theme parks
Project Start/Completion: Summer 2022
Stations containing bags for disposing of dog waste will be installed at select theme parks. To make these stations a success and allow us to install more in the future, please be sure to dispose of pet waste properly!
