Construction to Start on JULEPS Accessible Playground Expansion Project

Construction on the expansion of the JULEPS Playground is slated to begin on Thursday, October 24, 2019.  Improvements include the installation of 3,600 square feet of synthetic turf and accessible playground designed for children of all abilities between the ages of 5 and 12.  Once completed, this playground will provide playground access to over 100 children. Work will start each day no earlier than 7:00AM and finish by 6:00PM in accordance with City Ordinance 0-621. Work is anticipated to be completed by November 30, 2019 (pending weather-related delays).

Funding for this project is made possible in part by The National Park Service, Land & Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and the City of Parkersburg.

A special thanks to the Junior League of Parkersburg for initiating the JULEPS Playground Phase 1. The Junior League was responsible for the first inclusive playground in Parkersburg and the City is proud to advance its original vision.

For questions regarding the construction schedule, please contact the Development Department at 304-424-8452. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the public’s cooperation during the construction project.
