The final phase of the Children’s Playground Area was the construction the Children’s Water Playscape located in the area where Al’s Stand was removed between the Olympic Swimming Pool and the new Children’s Playground.
The new Children’s Water Playscape consists of “Touch Pad” sprinklers and water sprays and handicap access to the Water Playscape via a cement surface. New fencing was installed to replace the old fencing and a new walkway and landscaping between the Children’s Playscape and the Water Playscape were also completed.
This project greatly enhances Ocean Beach Park as well as the Children’s Playground. This Water Playscape creates a safe replacement for the old Kiddy Pool and completes the Children’s Playground Area.
The Save Ocean Beach Group raised funding from The New London Water Authority, Citizens Bank, The Knights of Columbus Seaside Council #17, Citizen Donations and Save Ocean Beach Group contributions to the project.
