The playground improvements are nearly complete at Arredondo Park. The final elements of the picnic ramada should be installed in early August. The project includes a complete renovation of the playground with a baseball theme, accessible walkways into the park, a new picnic ramada located north of the playground and new lighting in the playground area.
The improvements are funded out of the city’s Capital Improvement Program budget, as part of the Parks Improvement Plan, which is reinvesting more than $60 million into Tempe parks over the next few years . Additional modifications or enhancements to other park amenities are not included in the budgeted amount.
