What kind of playground equipment would you like to see in Beaufort’s Waterfront Park? That’s what city planners would like to know.

The city will be replacing the park’s aging playground equipment soon and is seeking input on what parents and community members would like to see as its replacement.

The equipment that is there now was installed in 2006 and is either wearing out or has parts that are nearly impossible to replace, said Downtown Operations Director Linda Roper.

The new equipment is expected to cost $250,000 to $300,000.

As of Thursday, Jan. 30 the city had already heard from 394 participants in the survey, and was planning to leave the survey posted for one more week.

If you’d like to give your feedback, you can find the survey on the city’s website and social media accounts or at www.surveymonkey.com/r/TPXHSK9.
