Bonham and Tanglewood Parks to Receive New Play Equipment

Bonham and Tanglewood parks are set to receive new play equipment following the unanimous approval by Bryan City Council on April 9.

Here’s an overview of the new equipment:

Bonham Park

2315 Russell Street (District 2)

The current playground and adjacent swing set were built in 2002. The structures have exceeded their life expectancy and replacement parts are no longer available by the manufacturer.

The new structures will boast three slides, interactive play panels, an athletic arch, ladders, climbers, swings, and a fall zone covered in bonded shredded rubber mulch. The play unit will be designed for ages 5 – 12 and the swings will be suitable for ages 2 – 12.

Tanglewood Park

3901 Carter Creek Parkway (District 4)

The current structure on the east side of the park was built in 2006. Replacement was deemed necessary due to deterioration from excessive use, replacement parts are no longer available, and the unit’s fall surfacing has exceeded its life expectancy.

The new playground, designed for ages 5 – 12, will feature multiple levels, four slides, a rope tunnel, StemPlay gears, ladders, climbers, and a fall zone covered in bonded shredded rubber mulch.

Funding is through the Fiscal Year 2024 Parks Improvement Plan funds and Parkland Dedication funds.
