Lady Lake Unveils ‘Childrens Choice’ Pyramid Park Playground

0.8 min read| Published On: April 24th, 2024|

Lady Lake’s Pyramid Park will soon receive an exciting makeover with the addition of new playground equipment.

Earlier this year, the Lady Lake Parks and Recreation Department outreached to area children to gather their input in choosing between two new playground options. Through votes taken at The Villages Elementary of Lady Lake, the Lady Lake Library and via the Town’s Facebook page, a majority of children opted for Design Option 1.

The chosen playground structure, in vibrant red, blue and yellow hues, includes several slides, a spinner, a rope climber, and various decks and platforms. It is specifically geared toward kids aged 5-12 with a focus on safety.

With approval from the Town Commission, and at a cost of approximately $270,000, the playground will be paid for through impact fees. The structure will be built by BCI Burke, a company based in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin.

The new structure will replace aging equipment that was removed earlier this year and will complement existing equipment that children have come to love.

When the installation begins, the entire playground area will be closed for two weeks to ensure the safety of our community. Residents will be notified via Facebook, the Town website, and signage.
