Pirate Ship Park work starts in Vail Tuesday
VAIL – The renovation of the approximately 30-year-old Pirate Ship Park will begin Tuesday, with completion expected in the spring of 2005. The park, located just east of the Vista Bahn ski yard, will get a new pirate ship play structure and improved landscaping. Artist Ty Gillespie of Minturn helped to design the new play area, which will feature slides, netting and ladders to climb, a pirate’s “plank,” crow’s nest and ship’s wheel.Viele Construction is the general contractor for the project. For more information, call town landscape architect Gregg Barrie at 479-2337.
