Phases & Opening


Phase 1

Phase I was completed in 2010 with the addition of nature themed play structures, a pavilion with picnic tables, and benches. Several families who were part of the original playground build twenty years ago were back to participate again. Also supporting the build were KaBOOM!, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Papa John’s Pizza, Walmart and Chick-Fil-A.

Phase 2 Details

Phase II was completed in 2013 with an all-inclusive play space that ensures children and adults of all abilities can have access without barriers to play. Phase II was designed to pay tribute to the history of the area that is now known as The Colony. Various elements of the play structures depict life as it was for the earliest settlers of this area.

Phase II also includes a sensory garden with unique musical instruments and an outdoor classroom with interpretive signs with information about the history of the area and the native plants and animals.
