Playground at Jim Jeffers Park to close for resurfacing July 11-17

By Staff | Jul 6, 2017

The playground at Jim Jeffers Park will be closed from Tuesday, July 11, through Monday, July 17 for a resurfacing project, according to the city of Cape Coral.

The current mulch surface is being removed and replaced with an artificial turf called X-grass, which comes with a soft pad base to help prevent injuries caused by falls. In addition, the new turf is much smoother than the mulch, which will improve accessibility for all patrons.

While the project is scheduled to take seven days to complete, the playground may open sooner than July 17 if the weather cooperates and work gets finished early.

Cape Coral residents and visitors who typically utilize the playground at Jim Jeffers Park are encouraged to visit the playground at nearby Joe Stonis Park, 3444 Ceitus Parkway, while the project at Jim Jeffers Park is taking place.
