Anna Ferguson started this petition to Royal Oaks RCOA

A petition to improve park by:

1. Add a fence perimeter around the playground, picnic tables and swings area

2. Add equipment to the playground suitable for children ages 5-9

3. Add parking spaces at the park and soccer field to keep cars and golf carts from parking directly on the street 

The Royal Oaks neighborhood park is actively used by the families in our community and needs improvements to the playground area in order to keep our young children safe from the busy street and additional equipment to engage our older children in play . Our playground area is wonderful for toddler age children but lacks play structures better suited for older kids 5-9. We propose developing the grassy area just beyond the picnic tables and behind the west-side soccer goal into an area with equipment targeted at the older 5-9 age group. Most of the families in our neighborhood have more than one child playing therefore it’s hard to keep an eye on them all at the same time especially if one wants to be on the playground and the other wants to swing. The playground bathroom is wonderful to have so close but creates a major blind spot where we cannot see the street.  A child can leave the playground and run into the street in the blink of an eye and having a fence around the perimeter would allow children to play more freely without risk. Because there are so many cars and golf carts parked alongside the street attending the park and soccer field, it’s incredibly dangerous for families to unload and load into their cars as other drivers are continuously passing parked cars along the narrow street. It would be beneficial to build parking spaces into the park and soccer field areas to allow the street to remain clear for drivers.  Any improvements that can be made to our playground area are greatly appreciated especially ones that make our kids safer and more engaged in their playtime!
