Benny Russell Park Closes for Renovations

Benny Russell Park, located at5417 West Spencer Field Road, will close for renovations Monday, March 4 for approximately two weeks. The renovation project will improve safety, increase the life of the structure, and help reduce overall maintenance in the future. The extremely popular, community-built playground opened in 2001 and was named after Benny Russell, Santa Rosa School Superintendent from 1980-1999.


Renovations will include the repair and replacement of broken equipment and design changes to improve visibility, better facilitate age separation within the playground areas, increase accessibility, and reduce exposure to treated wood by replacing handrails and other “high touch” areas with composite materials.


The Santa Rosa County Board of Commissioners approved a contract with Leather and Associates for design, oversight and inspections services with public works crews completing the labor, at the Feb. 14 meeting. Total renovations costs are estimated at $110,500
