Now that the community has decided to remove the current equipment (minus the turtle - the turtle stays!) and the trees in Surrey Square 1 aka the tot lot at the top of our neighborhood near Braddock Road, our next step is to provide feedback to the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) as to the new type of playground equipment we'd like to see in the space.
Once we provide direction, the FCPA will come back to us with a concept, time frame, and approximate cost to implement our vision. They will make revisions based on space, fall zones, regulations, etc.
If you are interested in providing your feedback, then please take a look at the GameTime website which is the playground equipment vendor for Fairfax County - http://www.gametime.com/playground-equipment/
You can also request a free catalog - http://www.gametime.com/catalog-request/
We are looking for feedback of all kinds. Anything and everything is helpful. If you want to provide a link to a piece of playground equipment you like or a certain page in the catalog, then please also include the reason why you like it. This is a great time to involve your children and/or grandchildren so let us know what they think too. We have met with some neighborhood parents and their children throughout this process, but the more feedback we can get from the kids the better!
