New Lincoln Playground

The City of Cambridge annually replaces playground equipment based on its age, its assessed condition, and as approved within the Capital Budget. Currently there are 3 playgrounds being replaced this summer, and they are at Lincoln Park, Gail St. Park, and at Northview Heights Park. We ask for your patience as the old equipment is removed and the site preparations takes place before the installations. At Northview Heights there will be intermittent disruption to the use of the spray pad due to the work. All are planned to be completed over the coming few weeks.  Playground users are reminded to respect all playground closures during the replacement work and to keep out of the fenced enclosures for their safety.

The new playgrounds will be available for use when all fencing is removed and they are fully inpsected and approved for use. We look forward to the improvements at these locations and trust playground users will be excited and well challenged by the new equipment. New park benches and garbage receptacles will be installed as quickly as possible shortly afterward.

There is also a fourth new playground coming very soon in the new neighbourhood park to be constructed on Linden Dr. The park will have a playground with Junior and Senior play structures and swings available as well as some accessible play components. It will be inter-connected with pathways through the park and have bench seating for some relaxing views of the park and play area. We are looking forward to this new park addition to the more than 70 playgrounds located across the city.
