Granny White Park’s playground closed Dec. 20 as the city begins preparing to build the Miles Together Playground, an all-inclusive playground for children of all abilities at the park.

The Brentwood City Commission unanimously passed final designs for the playground Dec. 13 at their regular meeting.

The standard equipment at the playground at 610 Granny White Turnpike will be relocated to Crockett Park, according to the plan.

The total cost to install the playground equipment and surface is $739,990, according to Brentwood City Manager Kirk Bednar.

The 22,000-square-foot playground will feature a mix of standard and accessible playground equipment.


Work to provide additional parking, fencing and another bathroom at the park increased the total cost of the project to $1.675 million, according to Bednar.

The playground is named for Miles Peck, a local boy who was born with Down syndrome. His family founded the Miles for Miles Foundation which donated $350,000 toward the project.
