Project Description: Renovation of the large Steinberg Playground in Cosmo Park. Playground is over 15 years old (dedicated in June 1997) and needs to be updated to meet revised playground standards, and many pieces are worn and need to be replaced. Plans to add poured-in-place surface in an all-inclusive area of the playground to make it easily accessible.
