Lions Club to refurbish Borough Park playground The Waldwick Lions Club is planning to upgrade its playground in Borough Park and last week received the mayor and council’s approval to do the work. Lions Past President Dave Marino told the governing body at its last meeting that no borough funds will be used for the project. The Lions have budgeted $8,000 for the work, which will be done by club members under professional supervision, he said. Marino said that the borough engineer would be asked to oversee the project and give recommendations to assure that all is done in accordance with borough code. Marino said that a committee of members has also been checking the playground to assess its needs and possible improvements and plan a work schedule that will have the least impact on the use of the facil- ���������������� ity. He said the decking replacement would probably be done over the winter months. New wood chips will be spread soon, particularly in the areas of heavier traffic. Plans call for removing some outdated pieces or pieces in need of repair and replacing them with new equipment. Wooden planks will be replaced with PVC decking, which is longer lasting, and will be installed level with the perimeter cedar beams to remove a trip hazard. Pavers may be installed at the entrance for a more comfortable access. The railroad ties surrounding the playground equipment will be removed and the ground graded. All grab bars and railing will be removed, repainted in bright colors and reinstalled. Cedar posts will be refurbished as well.
