A project to replace all of the playscape equipment at Cat Hollow Park with cutting-edge, nature-themed equipment will begin the week of Oct. 2. Below are several questions and answers to help residents understand more about the project.
Q) When will patrons no longer have access to the Cat Hollow playscape?
A) The playscape will no longer be accessible beginning the week of Oct. 2.
Q) When will work on the playscape begin?
A) While the playscape will be fenced off in preparation for demolition starting the week of Oct. 2, project work is anticipated to begin the week of Oct. 9.
Q) When will the construction crew be working on this project?
A) Typically, Monday through Friday no earlier than 7 a.m. or later than 7 p.m. Weekend work may occur occasionally but will not interfere with the Hairy Man event on Oct. 21 or the Holiday In the Park event on Dec. 2.
Q) Will any portions of the sidewalk surrounding Cat Hollow Park be blocked off?
A) Fencing will surround the playscape and create a construction driveway used for crews to enter the site. That path will run from the playscape to Liberty Walk Drive. However, the fencing will not restrict access to any portion of the sidewalk surrounding Cat Hollow Park.
Q) When will the playscape replacement be completed?
A) While we anticipate the playscape to be open by the end of fall 2023, unexpected delays are typical for any construction project, so we cannot specify an exact completion date.
Q) Will community events normally taking place at Cat Hollow Park be canceled this year?
A) No. Events including the Oct. 21 Hairy Man Festival and the Dec. 2 Holiday in the Park celebration will continue as planned.
Q) Will crews be working during the above-mentioned community events?
A) No. Project work will not take place during the Hairy Man Festival or Holiday in the Park.
Dear Brushy Creek MUD residents:
We are thrilled to announce that the Cat Hollow Park playscape will receive all new, cutting-edge play equipment and a brand-new look.
Starting Oct. 2, crews will fence off the playscape and begin working on the replacement project. At that time the playscape will be closed for use, but the rest of the park will stay open.
The new, nature-themed playscape is designed to foster creativity, physical activity, and social interaction. Like the current playscape, which people have enjoyed for more than 15 years, the new equipment will accommodate children ages 2-5 and 5-12.
Construction of the new playscape is anticipated to be complete by winter 2023. In the meantime, please make sure to check out all of the amenities within the District’s numerous other parks and playscapes.
