Project Background/Description

The Department of Parks and Recreation is replacing the Summerfield Park playground equipment at 8550 Chatsfield Way, North Englewood, MD. The playground replacement involves the removal and disposal of the existing equipment that has exceeded its useful life and the installation of new play equipment for both 2-5 and 5-12 age groups. To make the playground more accessible for park users, the playground will also be relocated closer to the Chatsfield Way parking lot and will be over 7,000sqft in size.

The Department needs your help to prioritize which elements and features to build in this playground! Below are some of the design considerations that shape the process. Please email for updates on how to participate in the design process.
