The crew from the City of Berea Public Works Department is making significant progress on the new playground structure next to Duerson Stadium at Berea City Park. With the help of technicians from Little Tikes, workers hope to have the project finished in early November, weather permitting.
The PlayStax structure will be prominently featured in the company’s promotional materials. In exchange, Berea received a substantial discount for the playground equipment, allowing the city to replace the failing structure for a total of $84,000 when the regular retail cost would have been $147,000. $150,000 was originally budgeted for the project.
