Situated in the Red Hill Creek watershed, the brand new William Connell City Wide Park features a river themed natural playground to mimic the nearby pond and streams. Designed to provide a variety of play elements and seamlessly connect with the adjacent splash pad, the playground encourages dramatic, creative and active play. The blue rubber surfacing mimics a river where a playable canoe sculpture rests overturned on a rock. Lily pad decks sit among the bullrushes that are connected by logs for climbing and balancing. The natural elements offer exciting and educational play opportunities for children young and old.
