WEST HAVEN, Sept. 17, 2020 — (Pictured): Mayor Nancy R. Rossi and Public Works Commissioner Tom J. McCarthy look over plans as a crew from ALZ Construction of Marshfield, Mass., finishes installing the new playground at Forest Elementary School on Wednesday, Sept. 16.

The powder-coated steel playscape, manufactured by BCI Burke Co. of Fond du Lac, Wis., is equipped with stainless steel hardware and molded plastic apparatus for children to play on, including a slide, tom-tom drums and a small rock wall.

Financed with a $100,000 state grant, the soon-to-be-opened playground is also outfitted with a pair of tire swings and park benches and a poured-in-place rubber surface for added safety.

Rossi said the Forest PTA had requested a playground for many years, adding that PTA President Carrie Malangone was the driving force behind the project, along with state Rep. Michael A. DiMassa, D-West Haven, who represents the district that includes the Allingtown school.

“We need to add more recreational facilities throughout the city for our younger generation, and this playground will provide a nice resource for them,” Rossi said.
