September 10, 2014 - Currently, the gravel sub-base for the rubber safety surfacing has been installed and the rubber installation crew is in town from Florida to complete the work. It is expected to take approximately 5 -6 days to complete the safety surface installation. This process is dependent on weather. Once the safety surface installation is completed, the playground equipment installer needs a day to finalize the last few pieces and then it must be certified by the manufacturers rep. Tentatively the playground is scheduled to open on Monday, September 22. The shelter will not be completed at this time but should be installed in the first week of October.
The Centennial Aquatic Center is now open! We look forward to seeing you this summer!
