The playground will be temporarily closed July 1-2 while a Lampson crane helps install the carousel. A gazebo will be relocated to allow the carousel to be built.

Meanwhile, due to the carousel construction, the aquatic playground at the Southridge complex will be closed for the rest of the summer. Three other aquatic areas remain open for residents:

  • Columbia Park next to the Playground of Dreams
  • Highlands Grange Park –1600 S Union St – adjacent to the Mid-Columbia Library
  • Underwood Park –2020 W 7th Ave.

These aquatic playgrounds are open from 10 a.m. until dusk through Labor Day.
