Improvements to McLean Playground

| Park Established 1917 |

McLean Playground is located on busy Bennington Street, adjacent to and heavily used by the Excel Academy middle school students before, during, and after the school day. The playground offers a number of mature shade trees and is a green haven in a dense neighborhood.

The Parks Department is excited to work on this project and provide improvements that will benefit the school and the community.  The intent is to:

  • enhance accessibility
  • offer a variety of play opportunities
  • upgrade the basketball court
  • provide passive seating and conversation, and
  • tell the story of the neighborhood.
