This is the newest park in St. Charles County (opened October 2018). Frankly it's amazing. It's definitely a destination playground. This playground is for kids of all abilities and encompasses social/emotional, physical, sensory, cognitive, and communication development. The playground is divided into zones: interactive and motion-activated water play; music play; adventure play with climbing features; inclusive swings; and a hillside slide.




Rolley slide



Musical area



This modified merry-go-round was a huge hit with a zillion kids getting on and off non stop


3 different drums


The splash pad area. Water comes down this wall and flows all the way down this creek bed.





 Pop jets, sprayers, and waterfall make this very large splash pad one of the best I've ever seen.


This hill was created specifically for kids to roll down. Everyone loved it! I've never seen this at any other park.


 The big kid area



 The swing area includes an expression swing, 2 adaptive swings, 2 baby swings, 2 sling swings, and a saucer net swing.








 The boardwalk is really nice, and it ends with a scenic view of the lakes. There is also a free distance viewer and a net built into the deck.


 









There are 2 really fast spinners next to the large playground.




Everyone loved this unique climber with rope bridge








The bathrooms are brand new and clean.


The pavilion is very large and would be a great place for a gathering, with the restrooms, lakes, and playground nearby.





The slide is very fast!



 Rolling down the hill!
