The city of Winston-Salem in conjunction with the WSFCS will begin a project to maximize the safety of our playground.  Below is a excerpt from an e-mail that outlines the scope of the project.

  • The city, within the next couple of weeks, will be installing bollards that will be cemented into the ground as an initial safety precaution. I asked Toneq McCulloch, the director of city transportation, to contact me which I’ll forward to you prior to installation. It should be done within the next 2 weeks
