New Albany Links neighborhood could have new play park for the kids thanks to funding from the village council.
The play area, or “tot lot,” at the development, off Sumption Drive is unofficially is being called Sumption Park, will cost the village about $60,000 for play equipment, a fence and some landscaping. The play park was approved by the council about a year ago as the lower area of the Links did not have a tot lot for the kids. The new lot is just off of one of the villages numerous leisure trails, giving access to much of the community. Additionally, the village aims to have a gazebo built near the tot lot as a gathering area for residents.
In the mid-1990s, the village council approved an ordinance to require housing developers to install play areas in each subdivision. The village currently has eight tot lots, however, as the Links is one of the older housing developments in the village the subdivision was not required to have a playground.
When completed, the village will provide maintenance for the playground for about 10 years. After that, the subdivision’s homeowners association will take over its care.
This is definitely exciting news for New Albany!
