Buchanan Street Park


This is a small playground that is used by children of all ages.  It would be great to have the soft surface installed to replace the mulch that has been there for years, even the softer mulch does not wear well, so the soft surface would be perfect for the children jumping and playing.  A swingset that accommodates both the toddlers and older children would also be very nice.  Years ago there had been a large swingset there that had the swings for the toddlers with the bar to keep them in the swings, that has been long gone and the current swing set has swings that are to high for the smaller children to use.  By having the soft surface the ground would not wear down under the swings making it easier for the smaller children to use the swings.


Buchanan Park

This park is located behind the Olde Towne Pool and adjacent to the Jefferson Houston School.  The actual adddress is 1501 Caqmeron Street.  It is right next door to the basketball court.  I would like to upload a picture, but the instructions say to use the edit button, but I don't see an edit button, so please visit this little park.  The grant could work wonders for it.
