The City of Salida Public Works Department has started the demolition of the current Riverside Park Playground. Construction of the new playground, as part of the 2016 Riverside Park Playground Replacement Project, will begin as soon as demolition of the old playground is complete. The playground area will be closed for the duration of the project, which is expected to take approximately 4-6 weeks.
This playground project is being funded by the Great Outdoors Colorado Grant Program, The City of Salida, Chaffee County and LiveWell Chaffee County. Riverside Park is the most-used park in Salida and This project will help make it an even more valuable asset in our community.
