East County’s First All Abilities Playground Coming to Crockett Park


Crockett Park is one of the original parks in Oakley. The play equipment is nearly two decades old and is in need of replacement. The City’s 5 Year Capital Improvement Program includes a project to replace the existing play equipment at Crockett Park. The City has been looking for opportunities to construct an all abilities playground that can serve special needs children; and retrofitting Crockett Park seemed like the perfect opportunity. City staff solicited design concepts from several playground equipment providers and collaborated with families of local special needs children on the design and configuration of the new play area. The proposal from Ross Recreation was selected as the preferred alternative. Along with installing the playground equipment Ross will also demolish the existing equipment and provide a rubberized surface for the new playground.
