The POA Board announced that the old playground equipment removed from Moonstone Beach earlier this year will not be replaced with new playground equipment.

The playground is too close to the lake and would require retaining walls on three sides to bring the grade up to ADA code, fencing around all of the equipment, and the removal of three mature trees that provide shading.

Director Jeanne O’Dell said that the parking lot was looked at as an alternative option for a location for a playground. “The parking lot does not contain enough space to build a playground and leave room for a parking lot,” O’Dell said.

For those reasons, the Recreation Committee withdrew its recommendation for a playground at Moonstone Beach. The committee has recommended that the POA replace the tables and add additional benches.

“I have been assured by our director of operation and by our chair of the Recreation Committee that they are continuing to look at options for a playground on the north side, in addition to the playground at Happy Camp,” O’Dell said. “I apologize that it has taken so long to get to this point, but I just wasn’t ready to give up,”
