9/23/22 UPDATE: The Dream Playground at Erickson Playfield will reopen a little earlier than expected! The playground will be ready for use on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at 12:00pm. Unfortunately, the gazebo at the playground will remain closed until the brick installation can be completed. This post will be updated when that work is completed.
The City of Port Angeles Parks & Recreation Department will temporarily close the Dream Playground at Erickson Playfield from Thursday, September 22nd through Sunday, September 25th, 2022. Please note: all other amenities at Erickson Playfield will remain open for enjoyment during this time.
The purpose of the closure is for staff to replace the worn turf around the ADA merry-go-round with a larger patch of turf in order to decelerate future wear and tear. Bricks dedicated to the playground’s sponsors will be installed around the gazebo during this time. Additionally, staff will sweep and clean the remainder of the turf.
Parks Maintenance is working hard to complete this work in a quick and efficient manner. We thank you for your patience during this brief closure.
