Residents can tell the city what kind of equipment and layout they’d like to see in the park in an online survey at www.goldenvalleymn.gov/parks/brookview/index.php.
Brookview Park, located off Winnetka Avenue just south of Hwy. 55, is one of the more heavily used playgrounds in the city. The new playground equipment will use the same footprint as the old and will likely be split into two sections, one for kids ages 2 to 5 and another for kids ages 6 to 12.
