Playground ground cover: rubber mats

The "treetop" playground at Shaw Park is located near the north parking lot. The playground is completely fenced in (with gates to exit the play area) so kids cannot run off. The "treetop" name comes from a treehouse play structure. The playground is designed for all kids to play, with adaptive swings, and ramps up to the play structures. There are musical instruments to play (but they are a little too high for toddlers). The only bad part is that there is no shade on the playground which is disappointing because it was just built in fall 2010. There are shade structures over the benches for parents but none over the playground area. The sprayground is on from 9 am to 8 pm during the summer months.











The playground below is located near the south parking lot. It is on the small side, but shaded. It also has a small sand area with a shovel.
