The Arlington Recreation Department has provided the following update on the Robbins Farm Park playground:

Today we were able to have the elementary aged swings installed and also were able to figure out a way to install two tot bucket swings. We are unable to open them fully because we are low on the playground surfacing but DPW has ordered some and it is expected in next week. Once we are able to build up the safety surface under the swings we can open the swings back up.

Thank you and everyone who uses Robbins Playground for your patience as we worked through these issues.

As a reminder, the entire playground is scheduled to be renovated and is expected to be completed by late next summer (2023).  The playground funding has been approved and the town is currently soliciting design firms with the plan to have one selected in early Fall.  Then there will be a process for public input.  We will provide updates on specific timing and venues so that you can share your thoughts.
