Pool/Playground Project Phase 1

 
The Travis Pointe board is pleased to announce a playground area has been approved that will be located just east
of the existing pool (see photo for exact location). The first phase of this project is scheduled to be completed by late spring of 2018.
 

The following will be done:

1.     Existing vegetation around the northeast side of the pool fence will be removed and the two existing trees in this area will be trimmed. An existing pine tree will also be removed. This is being done so parents can see their kids playing in the playground from the pool.
2.     This area has historically not drained well so drain tiles will be installed.
3.     The existing grass in the new playground area will be removed and the site leveled with a compost/sand mix.
4.     New kid friendly sod will be installed.
5.     A new fence, similar to the current fence, will enclose this area (see photo for outline).
6.     A few chairs/benches will be provided in the play area.
 

We are soliciting ideas for what should be inside this area, so please ask your kids. We currently have requests for soccer nets, badminton and corn hole. Swing sets, teeter-toters and spinning platforms will not be allowed because of safety concerns. Phase 2 will involve adding a playground which will be done at a future date. Phase 3 would add a half court basketball surface at a different location.
 
On a different topic, all of the pool lounge chairs will be replaced for 2018. The new lounge chairs will all have arms as an added feature. A few “sand chairs” will also be purchased. These chairs are low to the ground for sitting close to the pool. 
 
Please send requests for play ideas to Kara Smith, ksmith@travispointe.com.
