(Council Bluffs, IA) -- Council Bluffs' Cochran Park is getting a new playground.
Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation will start demolition to remove the current play structure at 100 South 21st Street on Monday, August 29th. Instillation on the new playground will start September 6th and is expected to open to the public in the fall.
“With its proximity to the new First Ave trail, and the recent renovations, Cochran Park will be a hub for family activities," said Council Bluffs Mayor Matt Walsh. "We are grateful to PowerTech for the generous community donation that made the new playgrounds possible."
The new play area will feature a structure for children ages 2-5, another structure for ages 5-12, and a swing set. The city is also developing plans to replace the basketball hoops and tennis courts next year.
