Bloomington plans to dismantle the city’s only non-accessible playground beginning September 4.
The playground equipment at RCA Community Park on the city’s west side is being removed to make way for new swing sets, a climbing net, benches, and other equipment that complies with ADA standards. The city also plans to build a new water fountain and sidewalk that will provide access to the restrooms.
The money for the project is coming from a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant. The renovations are scheduled to be complete by the fall.
