September 2014 Construction Update


The final stages of construction at Maggie Daley Park have kicked into high-gear. The first segments of the Ice Ribbon have been constructed and the steel for first of two Climbing Walls has been erected. The design team has been working hand-in-hand with the landscape contractors to make final adjustments to the Tree, Shrub, and Perennial plantings. Over the next few weeks, the remainder of the Ice Ribbon will be completed and the Playground will take shape. Recently the largest pieces of play equipment have been installed, as the 30 foot tall towers for the suspension bridge were put into position.

August 2014 Construction Update


As construction progresses at Maggie Daley Park, significant portions of the park design are beginning to take shape. On the North half of the site, the installation of the Climbing Wall has begun, alongside the installation of refrigerant tubes for the Ice Skating Ribbon. As these areas are developed, planting of trees and shrubs in adjacent soil helps to shape the future landscape. The large central lawn valley has been shaped and lined with a series of shade trees. At the southern corner, the Play Garden is being constructed as each new piece of play equipment arrives on site. The Play Ship and Lighthouse have been placed and construction of the Harbor is ongoing. After these key features are in place, crews will surround each with safety surfaces and a variety of planting. Check the Project Webcams to keep track of the daily progress.
