What We're Doing

The City is replacing the playground at Strickland Park, 300 S. Main Street.


Anticipated Milestones

  • Anticipated Date (Design):  April 2019

  • Anticipated Date (Construction): June 2019

  • Anticipated Date (Completion): July 2020


Benefits of the Project

The playground equipment at Stickland Park, which is one of the busiest playgrounds in Stillwater, is more than ten years old. Since replacement parts not available, it is important to replace all of the equipment with new, safe equipment. The City recognized that playgrounds provide opportunities for children to practice a range of social, emotional, physical and mental skills.
