Colonial Park Playground Project is Now Complete!

The City of West University Place is pleased to announce the final pieces to the Colonial Park Playground Project have been completed. These include the new Youth Fitness Challenge Course and the solar lighting in the playground and solar bollards around the walking path.

Previous improvements that included a toddler sand area with a sail boat, playhouse, sand diggers and buried fossils, new slides, climbers and play panels on existing play structures, powder coating the fence, and repaiting of the existing playground equipment and pavilion was completed December 18, 2020.

Improvements were funded through the generosity of the Friends of West University Parks Fund. Friends is pleased to announce that Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital is the sponsor for the new course. For more information about Friends, and all they do for West U Parks, please visit, www.westuparks.org.

Challenge Course Video 2

This layout and configuration is very similar to the challenge course under consideration; however, the equipment shown in the video is for ages 13 & up, and it is not the 5-12 year old equipment that is under consideration.
