Work will begin next month on replacing a hill slide in a Burlington park.

The existing slide and rubber safety surface at Forestvale Park playground, located at 1076 Forestvale Dr., will be removed beginning in June as crews work towards installing the new equipment.

As well as replacing the slide, a new protective safety surface will be installed on the hill as well as sod restoration around the construction zone. The playground will not be replaced at this time.

The full playground and slide area will be closed during construction, and although the remainder of the park will stay open, there could be some minor inconveniences due to construction activity.

The playground and slide area will be closed and fenced off with signs posted until the final safety inspection is complete.

The Canada Post community mailbox located in front of the playground area will also be temporarily moved a short distance away from the construction access.
