The city has removed the old playground components that unfortunately failed due to location, salt, and wind. With input from a Marina Park Playground Sub-Committee—made up of members from Pierpont Bay Community Council, Pierpont neighbors, 3 members from the Parks & Recreation Commission, city staff, and staff from Pacific Coast Land Design, a conceptual design was created and readied for comments from the full Parks and Recreation Commission.
During the playground subcommittee meetings in 2021, parallel meetings were going on with the VenturaWaterPure (VWP) project, which will involve construction activities, including pipe installation, within Marina Park. For safety reasons, until VenturaWaterPure construction activities in Marina Park are completed, the construction of the playground is delayed. In May 2022, staff removed the existing playground components and temporarily installed new sand, picnic tables, and trash receptacles for public use.
