A morning ribbon-cutting served as the big reveal after months of renovation work.
The new and improved playground features climbing areas and a spray water area - similar to what the city created at Peabody Park. The old playground area has become green space.
The new playground is designed to have outdoor rooms - each with its own unique characteristics that heighten experiences of children and adults alike. Additionally, a range of climbing skill levels is woven into the native stone walls - with some areas that will be attractive to professional rock climbers.
A knobby hill is available for climbing with a variety of ways to enter and exit over it. There are numerous slides that penetrate through it to underground tunnels that lead to the water spray play area.
Grottos, caves and rock crannies are laced with water spray, mist and fog that provide a distinctive play experience and relief from the heat. A large open space is next door for free play, catch, volleyball or other field games.
The Pavilion is also nestled nearby to take advantage of views of Coleman Creek, the golf course as well as the natural play area. This facility accommodates special events and is available for rental.
