When does the park close for the season?
Like any other park, weather permitting, we won't officially close for the season. However, please note that the restrooms are closed from November to April.
Can you tell me about the accessible features of the park?
It would take quite a while to list them all. The park was built with many custom-designed elements The large windows in the village houses allow parents to use sign language to communicate with hearing impaired children while they play inside. Broad ramps throughout the park let youngsters in wheelchairs get a loftier view of the world. And, the slides have transfer decks so children in wheelchairs can be helped onto the equipment.
What type of surfacing is throughout the park?
The park was recently resurfaced with a soft artificial turf. We do not have crumb rubber associated with our turf, but rather an alternative health-conscious sand. This special sand was more costly, but provides a soft, safe cushion surface.
