A few Tewksbury Patch readers wanted to know the answer to that question. So we tracked down the timeline courtesy of the Town of Tewksbury website, which has an outline of the project.
Among the improvements coming to the site is the demolition of the existing play structure, improving handicap accessibility, improving the shade area, installing a new ground surface, structures and fencing, and the addition of an asphalt walking surface.
The project is expected to cost $218,317, which will be paid for out of CPA funds, according to the town website.
Residents will be able to utilize the playground before summer is out according to the current timeline, which is as follows, according to the town:
- July 7-11 - Site demolition and some preparation will begin, though that depends on the progress of the demolition.
- July 14-18 - Site preparation.
- July 21-25 - Workers will finish site preparation and begin installing some of the smaller pieces.
- July 26-27 - Community build weekend.
- July 28-August 1 - The walkway, fence and handicap accessible ramp will be installed, and finishing touches and clean up will be completed.
- August 2 - Scheduled opening day.
