Like other major cities, there have been postponed events and meetings in Hamilton County, while temporarily closing restaurants, bars, and attractions—all to help keep residents and visitors safe and healthy.
The park encompasses more than 25,000 square feet and includes numerous areas for climbing, swinging, sliding, exploration, and water play. The playground has a futuristic appearance, which should spark the imagination of kids of all ages. Nestled within a hill that helps keep kids contained and masks the true magnitude of the playground, highlights include: two 32-foot-tall enclosed towers with bridges, walkways and slides, climbing opportunities throughout the play area, numerous tunnels and coves, two specific zones for age-appropriate play (2-5 years and 5-12 years), an electronic game, similar to whack a mole (music, tap lighted posts), rubber safety surfacing throughout, with rolling hills and dots for creative play. In an adjacent but separately contained zone, the Splash Pad, has opportunities to spin and rotate features and most importantly, cool off during hot Indiana summers. Giant cattails, flowers, and playful critters join a symphony of sprays and geysers to entertain kids throughout the summer. The splash pad will be open annually beginning Memorial Day weekend until temperatures begin cooling in late September. This side of the park boasts over 3 miles of trails that go between prairies, wetlands and woodlands. The Monon Community Center is just a few walking miles away.
