Lakewood Park Improvements
After a year of planning, the playground equipment located at Lakewood Park will be upgraded, paid for by the city of Modesto and assembled by neighborhood volunteers the week of the April 20.
Starting on April 20, Lakewood Park Playground will be closed to accommodate the maintenance work.
April 20 to the 22 the removal of old parts will take place. In addition, the remaining posts and bars will be sanded and get a new coat of paint.
April 23 and 24 the new parts will be installed by the Lakewood Volunteers and the City of Modesto Public Works Park Operation Services Administration Department.
On April 25 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm there will be a “Celebration in Lakewood Park” for the reconditioned “Playground.” The Modesto Police Department will be hosting a BBQ and there will be a very short program in celebration of the newly reconditioned Playground.
