City of Rockport | "City Announces Changes at Two Parks; Spencer and Memorial"

A new net climber play structure, known as Spaceball, replaced the 30-year-old equipment at Spencer Park, located on E. Bay St. According to Director of Parks and Leisure Services Rick Martinez, this is part of the City’s plan to focus on structures that spark imagination, encourage creative play, provide a physical challenge to children, and promote overall psychomotor development.

Designed and manufactured in Germany by the internationally recognized Berliner Seilfabrik, the net structure offers hours of fun and adventure on several levels – climbing, rocking, hand-over-hand climbing and swinging, up and down, horizontally and vertically – space on earth. Approximately 16 nets in different geometrical shapes, sizes and supporting constructions form the planets in the spatial net universe. To help defray project costs, the City Parks Maintenance staff removed the existing equipment, prepared the site and installed the new structure. Estimated savings by doing the work in-house is approximately $10,000.

In other news, a security gate has been installed at the entrance of Memorial Park, located at the intersection of Pearl/FM 2165 and Enterprise. As of May 8, the park will be closed and locked between the hours of 11 pm and 5 am.
