    Does anyone know what a good GPS address for this might be? I looked at it online and it looks like there is another playground nearby I just don’t want to confuse people if I go there. Thanks!

    NEW Playground Surface On Its Way
    As the Oakland Recreation Complex continues to improve, the next BIG thing is a new surface for the main playground. Out will be the cut up dirty tire pieces, in will be a new ADA compliant, colorful, clean and soft surface. Keep an eye on the playground as June is the target month for completion.

    I am thinking that is referring to the main playground which is located in the same complex. The new surface sounds great, fair lawns parks have the tire pieces, I don’t mind them but they can get a bit dirty. Only problem with the clean soft surfaces is that they get really hot in the summer.
