Two existing playgrounds in Spring Garden Township will soon get makeovers.

Grantley Park, located at 855 Grantley Road, and Elmwood Park & Field, at 1759 Third Ave., will be renovated, with new playground equipment installed and both sites becoming compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The township accepted the Matthew's Construction bid of $277,949 to work on the project at a board of commissioners meeting July 10.

Marcy Krum-Tinsley, township manager, said work on the playgrounds will not begin until after August because parks programs are happening at the playgrounds.
