Update (August 2023): We are ready to install the new playground and need your help! We will be holding a community playground build on Saturday, September 30 at 9:00am. Sign up here to help build the playground. No experience in necessary - our contractor will be on hand to train and guide the installation.
As part of the City’s community asset replacement program, the Keya Park playground (formerly Pocahontas Park) is scheduled to be replaced in fall 2023. We are ready to begin with a playground design process and need your help with planning the playground.
We have scheduled three meetings to plan the playground replacement. The meeting dates are as follows:
Initial Design Meeting - Tuesday, February 28 at 6:00 p.m.
Initial concept planning and input. This will be an interactive discussion on what you would like to see in your new playground.
Second Design Meeting – Wednesday, March 29 at 6:00 p.m.
Review proposed concepts and make decisions on possible tradeoffs. Staff will present multiple concepts based on the feedback from initial meeting for interactive discussion.
Final Concept Open House – Thursday, April 6 at 6:00 p.m.
This meeting will be an open house where we will showcase the final preferred concept.
ALL MEETINGS WILL BE HELD AT THE CEDARHOLM COMMUNITY
BUILDING, 2323 HAMLINE AVE. N.
Neighborhood feedback is crucial to a successful playground project, so we strongly encourage you to attend.
Installation of the playground is anticipated to occur in fall 2023 and will be installed, in part, using community volunteers.
