As of April 13th, the installation of the playground equipment is complete. The 20 x 20 pavilion is still under construction with an anticipated completion date of April 23rd. The new fencing is complete and City staff will be completing the bollards over the next week. Mulch for the old playground area and around the pavilion slab has been ordered and will be spread once received. Staff does not have an official Grand Opening date yet, but check back here for future updates.

Staff recently solicited quotes for the concrete pad required for the installation of the donated pavilion. The crew completed its work on March 10th and the poured concrete will require a 28-day cure period before the pavilion can be installed.
Additionally, the playground equipment itself will begin installation on March 15th and is anticipated to take about two weeks to complete.

The bottle brush tree in the playground has been pruned and the roots treated. In a month, El Cheapo will be on-site to inject the tree with nutrients, which will enhance the foliage. The four sabal palms, one bottle brush tree and paurotis palm have been removed.
On Monday, February 15th, staff will meet with Wayne Armand, Project Innovations to stake out new play area, begin removing the sod and remove existing playground equipment. Public Works and Recreation staff should be on-site most of the week next week. Additionally, the park will be without playground equipment for a few weeks. Mid-week, Public Works will begin building the forms for the slab for the pavilion.

On January 19th, the Commission approved the installation of a new playground at Rosselli Park which will be installed east of the existing playground area. A document indicating the project area and three potential project renderings can be viewed here. Additionally, through a very generous donation of an Isle of Capri resident, a new 20x20 wooden pavilion will be installed at Rosselli Park. A possible rendering of that pavilion can be accessed here.
Public Works is going to remove the concrete slabs the last week of January and temporarily relocate the picnic tables to the area by the shuffleboard courts. A tree service company is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of February 8th to remove the trees for the installation of the new playground and the 20x20 pavilion as well as begin the vertical mulching and pruning of the bottle brush tree located in the current playground. The building of the slab and the removal of the playground equipment will occur once the trees are removed.
