City moves forward with plans to replace playgrounds at two local parks

Round Rock City Council approved Thursday, Jan. 13, the purchase of new playground equipment for the replacement of existing structures at Kinningham Park and Buck Egger Park later this year.

Contracts with We Build Fun, Inc. and The PlayWell Group, Inc. will include the removal of old equipment, as well as the purchase and installation of new equipment and safety surfacing at both parks.

The new playgrounds will feature state-of-the-art play structures including swings, slides, a variety of stationary and netted rope climbing structures, balance paths, interactive play opportunities and more.

Supply chain issues are expected to impact availability and delivery of the new equipment. Installation is estimated to be completed within approximately six to eight months.

Funds for the combined $256,000 project are allocated from the City’s Parks Improvement and Acquisition Fund, which is dedicated to funding projects that enhance and expand local parks throughout the community.

Since 2019, the Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department has replaced playgrounds at Frontier Park, Mesa Village Park, Meadow Lake Park, Bradford Park and Memorial Park.

The replacement of the Kinningham Park playground structure coincides with a $2.3 million project to rebuild the Kinningham House, expected to also be completed this summer. For more information on local City parks and trails, visit roundrocktexas.gov/parks.
