As parents of little ones, we love the parks that allow us to see our children and get to them quickly if there’s a problem, but let us stay just far enough away to let them learn, play and grow. The City of Greenwood has really mastered the art of the pocket park and they aren’t done!
The park is located just north of Pleasant Creek (the one that runs through the property near the Community Center and Mrs. Curl), between Fire Station 91 & the amphitheater. It’s fashioned to look like a fire station and a fire truck and should appeal best to kids age 5 and up. Your kids should be able to play on it by the end of April.
At this time, there is no adult seating scheduled to be put into place but the parks department is seeking partnership from the community and local businesses to be able to provide this. The closest restrooms are located at Old City Park, so you’ll have to use the facilities before you get to this playground but there’s hope that at some point in the future, restrooms will be built near the amphitheater. Also, we’ve noticed that there are generally port-o-lets available in that area during the summer concert season.
What a fantastic addition to the Greenwood community and the parks collection. This project is funded by the Greenwood Fire Department, Greenwood Rotary Club and Greenwood Parks.
