The Jackson Municipal Band donated funding in May 2017 for the playground equipment which was installed next to the band shell in December.  The total cost of the infrastructure was $35,500 according to Bollinger.  In October, Hutchinson Recreation & Design, of Lake Saint Louis, Missouri, was awarded the project.

The playground is for children ages 5-10 as the Jackson Municipal Band intended. Bollinger said this would give kids of that age group another option for entertainment during the Municipal Band summer concerts and for general use in that area of the park.
