Santa Monica Parks + Beach Improvements:
North Beach Playground
The North Beach Playground will have its official opening on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 10am.
This will be Santa Monica's newest universally accessible playground. The playground will include separate play areas for children 2–5 years old and another for children 5-8 years old. Universally accessible playgrounds include barrier-free equipment, increased maneuvering space, and accessible surfaces and paths. Sensory play elements such as touching, feeling, and hearing are utilized as well as swings, slides, and climbing equipment to inspire activity, mobility, and imagination in all children. Construction will begin in January 2018, with completion expected in Fall 2018.
