Located south of Ocean Boulevard and east of Shoreline Drive, between 5th and 6th Places (not Streets), the $400K project will connect eight floating structures—springboards, bouncers, monkey bars, slides—that will be free and open to the public—all in the hopes that it will encourage some fun nut much-needed exercise among residents.
“Families really need to see this floating playground off Long Beach's coast to believe it—folks are going to be spending a lot of days out here on the water enjoying this new attraction, so you'll want load up on the sunscreen this summer and for many summers to come,” stated 2nd District Councilmember Cindy Allen. “This new playground will make our shoreline more fun for everyone, and I can't wait to get out there and jump around on it myself.”
