A brand new playground is coming to Reinhart Volunteer Park in Grants Pass.

The City of Grants Pass has announced that on March 11th, the large play structure area -- including the Key Shelter -- will be closed and fenced off during removal of the current playground and construction of new equipment at the All Sports Park.

Depending on the weather, city park officials said construction is expected to be finished by the end of April.

Money for this project comes entirely from Grants Pass Tourism Lodging Tax revenue plus a grant from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department's Land, Water and Conservation Fund.

Reinhart Volunteer Park has become the city's most popular park destination and Grants Pass officials are excited to replace the current 30-year-old play structure that was paid for and installed by the Grants Pass Active Club with a new two-structure system chosen as the favorite option from a recent community survey.

There will be separate play structures for children 5-12 years old called "Big Kids" and for children 2-5 years old called "Tot Lot." The city worked with the state and received additional grant funding to utilize rubber tile for the playground surfacing.
