ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (March 17, 2022) – The Town of Oro Valley is excited to announce that the playground at James D. Kriegh Park is ready to reopen with brand-new playground structures and play surface.
A ribbon-cutting to show off the new and improved playground will be held on Thursday, March 24 from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at James D. Kriegh Park (23 West Calle Concordia). Oro Valley Mayor Joe Winfield, members of Council and Town Manager Mary Jacobs will be in attendance.
The updated playground amenities include a jungle gym, slides, swings, climbing structures and interactive music structures. The playground is ADA accessible and has a seating area for adults to keep an eye on little ones.
The previous playground equipment was over 20 years old and was identified as needing to be replaced through the Parks and Recreation Master Plan process that was conducted in 2020/21. The playground temporarily closed in early February to replace the equipment.
Following the ribbon-cutting, the community is invited to visit JDK Park and play on the new structures. Have fun, Oro Valley!
