A Better Fence Will Make a Better “Tot Park”

Tot Park Fence before

Elberta Parks and Rec has made installation of a new Tot Park fence a priority for this summer. The current chain-link fence is in bad condition and doesn’t fully enclose the play area.

The Commission has sought estimates for a sturdy, attractive new fence that will fully enclose the play area, and we are now looking for funding. The new fence will be compliant with playground fence standards, long-lasting, maintenance-free, and will improve the viewscape for both residents and visitors. Because of Elberta’s tight financial situation, we’ll be looking for outside funding sources.

Other Elberta Parks and Recreation Commission priorities include planning for this year’s Solstice Festival, scheduled for June 21, adding named planks to the beach boardwalk, and discussing enhancements to the Elberta Dunes South Recreation Area. The next Commission meeting is May 7 at 7 pm at the Elberta Library building, the public is welcome to attend.—Cathy Anderson, new Parks and Rec member
