Help Design The New Friendship Park Playground

Your feedback is important! Please complete this brief six question survey to help design and select the right equipment for the new Accessible, Inclusive and Universal Designed Friendship Park playground at Roberts Field, 260 Old Westford Rd, Chelmsford, MA.

The Roberts Field Advisory Committee is working with the Town of Chelmsford to build the new nature-themed playground that will include a mix of natural landform play areas, prefab “natural” playground equipment, resilient fall material surfaces and pathways, landscaping, and natural play surfaces. Equipment should be long-lasting, require minimal maintenance, and be fully warranted with an expected 30+ year usable life. The new playground design will be finalized January 2018, with a "Community Build" installation planned for Summer 2018.
