Hillsborough Asks for Input on Proposed Playground in Seffner-Mango
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2020) - Hillsborough County's plan to bring a regional-sized playground to the Seffner-Mango area has one big question left to be resolved: Where should the playground be built?
Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation will hold an open house on Tuesday, Jan. 21, to provide an overview of the project and answer questions. Perhaps the biggest of those questions is whether the playground should be at Seffner Community Park next to the Seffner-Mango Branch Library, or at the Mango Recreation Center off Clay Pit Road. The library location would involve creating a new playground; the recreation center location would involve renovating existing playground equipment.
The selected site would get a playground much larger than those usually found in neighborhood parks. The playground would include an area for kids between 2 and 5 years old and another area for children 5 to 12 years old. Amenities could include adaptive equipment, slides, swings, mazes, shade structures, climbing equipment, and monkey bars.
Work on whichever site is selected is scheduled to begin this fall with an estimated completion of spring of 2021.
The Jan. 21 open house will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Seffner-Mango Branch Library, 410 Kingsway Road. For more information, call (813) 612-7934.
