Depot Park Playground is Getting More Shade


The City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department (PRCA) is happy to announce the installation of permanent shade sail structures in Depot Park’s children’s play area in November. The shade sails will provide relief from the sun where it is needed most. Although a portion of the play area will be closed during construction, the remainder of the park and the splash pad will remain open for enjoyment.

Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, Nov. 6, and completion is expected before the new year.

Stay informed on the schedule and progress of the installation by visiting our website, following our social media pages and with signage posted at Depot Park.
