Upper Marlboro Community Center Playground Replacement

The community's input on the new playground at Upper Marlboro Community Center is very important to us! 

Project Background/Description

The Department of Parks and Recreation is replacing the playground equipment at Upper Marlboro Community Center. The playground replacement involves the removal and disposal of the existing equipment that has exceeded its useful life, and the installation of new play equipment within the 5,000 sqft play space. 

The Department needs your help to prioritize which elements and features to build in this playground! Below are some of the design considerations that shape the process.
