Lakeview Knolls, 1717 Regatta Drive
A new playground for children ages 5-12 will be installed late this summer. Removal of the old structure, which is approximately 26 years old, and installation of a new playground will be timed as close together as possible to minimize closure of this park amenity. Residents near the park will receive an additional notice from the city in advance of this closure once plans are finalized. The old playground structure will be utilized by Kids Around the World, a nonprofit organization that acquires and restores used commercial playgrounds to relocate in regions affected by war or poverty. This will be the 10th playground Kids Around the World has been able to recondition from the City of Woodbury.

Additional trees and park benches will be added to this new park, which is expected to be open to the public in late June.
