Westhaven Park Play Structure Removal

Westhaven Park Play Structure Removal

During a recent park inspection of West Haven Park, located at 930 Mitchell Ave China Grove, NC 28023, various safety concerns were brought to the attention of staff.

The safety of our residents is our upmost priority. Due to these safety concerns, the main play structure of the playground has been closed and will be removed from the park. All other park features will remain including the picnic benches, swings, roller log, overhead rotating equipment, and free standing climbing structure.

West Haven Park will temporarily close September 26th – 28th 2023 for the removal of the play structure. The park is expected to reopen by the end of the day on September 28th, 2023.

Please note, weather or other conditions may change this schedule. Upon reopening, contractors will refresh the wood chip surfacing in October.  

Town staff along with the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board are working to develop a comprehensive plan to replace the play structure. Public input is always welcome at advisory board meetings. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:00 PM at the Community Memorial Park (412 S Myrtle Ave China Grove, NC 28023).
