Two Bay City parks are getting makeovers

Kids and fitness fans will slide into fall with new equipment in two Bay City parks.

On Bay City’s West Side, workers are constructing a new accessible playground called Play City at Vets Park. In August, kids can take a spin on a new merry-go-round, fly high on two-person swings, and scale climbing features to reach for the sky from the park.

The new structure, which replaces an older, traditional playground inside Veterans Memorial Park on Bay City’s West Side, is expected to open in August. The playscape will sit in a grassy expanse of land near Liberty Harbor Marina. A pavilion nearby provides shade and picnic tables.

On the East Side of Bay City, a Fitness Park is taking shape inside the 9.7-acre Maplewood Park, located at the corner of First and North Sheridan streets.

The Fitness Park features wall climbers, a pipeline, lava loop, and more, to inspire fun and fitness.

The Bay Area Community Foundation’s Healthy Living Fund is part of funding for each project.

"We are eager to hear laughter as children play together again in our city parks," says Foundation President & CEO Diane Fong.
