It’s play time! The revitalized South Arm Community Park playground is officially open.

Richmond City Council officially opened the renovated South Arm Community Park playground this morning. The playground has been refreshed, resulting in a unique and updated play experience. Today’s event celebrated the completion of the project and key funding support from the South Arm Community Association. 

The renewal has resulted in a unified, cohesive play environment that offers increased play opportunities for all ages and abilities. Highlights include:

  • Multiple new play elements with universally inclusive features including a large slide and many climbing areas.
  • New towers and other large play features that blend into the surrounding landscape.
  • A unique and fun zipline.

Stakeholders and the broader community were consulted throughout the renewal process and their invaluable input was key to the project’s success.

South Arm Community Park is located at 8680 Williams Road. Details about the park can be found at
