Kidsburg to reopen in August 2013

The renovation of James City County’s Mid County Park, including the Kidsburg playground is well underway. Despite significant rains much progress has been made. The old Kidsburg structure was removed, and contractors have prepared the site and installation of the new playground structure is ongoing.

photo 3Both picnic shelters (ABOVE) received new roofing, and one shelter was enlarged due to the removal of an old concession room. Improvements to the front parking lot are scheduled to take place in late July.

The basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts as well as the walking trail remain open during daylight hours with parking available in the back parking lot. Originally slated to be opened this week, the park is expected to open in its entirety in early August.

The renovation of Mid County Park, including the Kidsburg playground is well underway. Despite significant rains much progress has been made. The old Kidsburg structure was removed, and contractors have prepared the site and installation of the new playground structure is ongoing.During the Kidsburg renovations, you can enjoy the playgrounds located within the other County parks and facilities— Chickahominy Riverfront Park,  Little Creek Reservoir Park, Upper County Park, James City County Recreation Center, James River Community Center and the Warhill Sports Complex. In addition to these sites, all Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools playgrounds are open to the community during after school hours.  The walking trail and basketball, tennis and volleyball courts at Kidsburg have remained open throughout construction.

The old Kidsburg, a community-built playground, opened in 1994 and no longer meets ADA guidelines or current standards for public-use playgrounds. The new playground will be fully ADA and safety compliant, universal and barrier free.
