Ped Mall playground to close temporarily

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A popular Iowa City playground will soon close for a few weeks.

The Downtown Iowa City children's play area on the Ped Mall will undergo a resurfacing project. It will require the play area to be fenced off.

The area will close on Monday, August 4. It's expected to reopen on Monday, August 25.

Crews will apply a new rubberized surface on top of the concrete to provide a cushion for kids. It will also add more color to the area.

The playground will also be getting a new slide and maintenance will be done on other equipment.
