Carousel Construction

The playground at the Southridge Sports and Events Complex will be closed July 1 and 2 for safety purposes.

A crane will be on location to move the gazebo that is currently located where construction has started on the Carousel of Dreams.

The gazebo relocation is one of the first steps in the construction process for the carousel.

The public can check out the progress of the carousel construction by clicking here where new project developments are frequently updated.

The aquatic playground at the Southridge complex is also closed for the summer during the carousel construction.
