SUFFOLK, Va. - With the success of Lake Meade's recently built inclusive park, the City of Suffolk has allocated capital funds to build another inclusive playground on the northern end of the City at Bennett’s Creek Park.

The city began construction on January 14, 2021, with the installation of equipment estimated to take approximately 14 to 21 days.

The Pour-In-Place surfacing will be installed when the weather turns slightly warmer.

The playground design and build is being completed by Sparks@Play, the Virginia representative for Landscape Structures Incorporated.

Additionally, Suffolk Parks & Recreation plan to replace three playgrounds that have come to the end of their lifecycle: Lake Kennedy Park, Mary Estes Park, and Sleepy Hole Park, according to a news release,.
