City workers were installing new playground equipment at Magic Island Wednesday.
The city is also installing equipment in a lot in the city's East End. The city purchased $50,000 worth of equipment from PlayTime Playgrounds for $25,000.
Work at Magic Island should be done by the end of the week, Parks and Recreation Director John Charnock said. However, city crews still need to place mulch under the equipment.
The playground should be ready for use by the end of next week.
