A new playground is on the horizon for Horsepen Run Stream Valley Park in Herndon.
The Fairfax County Park Authority is expected to begin construction to replace the aging equipment. Demolition of the existing playground will begin the week of Sept. 19, according to FCPA.
The new playground should be completed by the end of November and be ready for use this December.
The equipment — which is faded and rusting in many areas — has only seen minor repairs and upgrades since it was originally installed in the 1990s.
“The equipment has now exceeded its life expectancy and no longer meets currently safety guidelines,” the park authority said.
The project is expected to cost $180,000, an estimate that includes the design, layout, drainage and demolition of the existing playground.
The project will also improve an accessible route from the Fairfax County Department of Transportation trail to the playground.
While construction takes place, access will be available from Ashdown Forest Drive. Residents should expect construction traffic entering and exiting the park entrance to that location.
