The city of North Bend recently inspected the playground structure at EJ Roberts Park and determined it has deteriorated to a point that it’s no longer safe for the general public and must be removed.

The playground structure was originally scheduled to be replaced in 2020 according to the Parks Capital Facilities Plan. However, the city is proposing to expedite replacement and is currently gathering various playground equipment options. These options will be presented during the July 26 and Aug. 23, Parks Commission meetings to obtain a recommendation. The meetings are being held at 6:30 p.m. at the City Hall Annex, 126 E. 4th Street.

Citizens are welcome to attend these meetings. The commission will make its recommendation to the city council and propose funding in the city’s 2018 budget. This funding decision will be made by the council.
