The City of Huntington Beach Community Services Department has developed initial plans for a new playground on the beach.
The project has received conceptual approval from the Community Services Commission as well as from the City Council. The playground design meets the requirements of the Americans with Disability Act and will be a Universally Approved Playground, which will be accessible for people with varying abilities.
Funding for this project will be a community grass roots effort. The Community Services Department has obtained donations, has applied for a recycled materials grant and is working with several community partners on funding, including the Kiwanis Foundation of Huntington Beach and the Rotary Club of Huntington Beach.
The playground is to be built on the sand in Huntington Beach with the location to be determined. Staff is in the process of obtaining a Coastal Development Permit for the project. If fundraising is successful and all necessary permits are obtained in a timely fashion, installation is slated for sometime in the Fall of 2016.
