Cove Recreation Area Playground Completed

in Government

The City of Orange has announced that the Cove Recreation Area playground has been completed just in time for Christmas break.

When fully complete, the recreation area will feature a walking trail, a playscape with shade sails, benches, a pavilion, and other amenities, creating a space for residents of all ages to enjoy.

The recreation area is along DuPont Drive and was once the site of the old Cove School. The school had been sold to private owners and had been vacant for nearly 30 years. The city bought the property with the specific goal of tearing down the dilapidated school and turning the land into a park.

Thanks go to Parks Division Manager James Lawrence and city staff for all their work on this project in the Cove community.
