Media release: Ridge Ferry Park is getting an update thanks to SPLOST. A new playground is in the works as part of the 2017 SPLOST package. Parks and Recreation crews will begin removing the old playground on Monday, Aug. 3.
A design for the new playground has been chosen and once the old one is removed, work will begin on preparing the site for the new playground. Construction should be done by late fall, if the weather cooperates.
“We’re excited to begin working on this project and updating this playground at Ridge Ferry Park,” Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation Authority Director Todd Wofford says. “We also are excited about the design of the new playground and we think it’s going to be a great addition to the park once it’s complete.”
The public is asked to avoid the construction area, which will have caution tape and fencing around it, while the old playground is being removed and the new one is constquipructed.
