If you’re visiting Menlo Park Playground soon you may have to take a few extra steps if you’re parking in the MAC parking lot or on 5th Avenue. Due to the Borough’s upgrades to the park play equipment in 2018, the insurance company required some extra safety measures to accommodate the structures that were closest to the road and parking area where cars would be traveling. The fence placed along 5th Avenue and the parking lot will aid in deterring any vehicles from striking a child who may be on the equipment, should such an accident occur. This semi-perimeter fence is a standard safety measure for the residents and visitors to our park and was funded by Recreation Impact Fees from new home development. We hope you have been using and continue to enjoy the playground, zip line, swings, and hexagon climber! If you have any questions or comments please contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 215-257-5065.
