PHOENIX – Scottsdale is in the process of updating five city parks with new playgrounds and other renovations.

Mountain View Park (8625 E. Mountain View Road) was up first and has been open with new equipment since December.

An updated playground was opened at Northsight Park (8400 E. Thunderbird Road) in January, but work continues on a new shade structure scheduled for completion before the start of summer.

Three parks are closed until later in February while they undergo renovations: Horizon (15444 N. 100th St.), Thunderbird (9170 E. Thunderbird Road) and Aztec (13636 N. 100th St.).

The five parks, opened between 1995 and 1997, also are getting wood chips to replace sand and for the purpose of creating safer, cleaner play areas.

The work is part of the city’s Capital Improvement Plan.
