Young and old alike are drawn to the interactive features of this play area, which easily is one of the largest in the Inland Northwest. It was designed to be one of the busiest spots in McEuen, and it’s mostly wheelchair accessible with ramps and includes sensory activities such as chimes and drums. Artificial turf and padding absorb falls, and there’s a separate play structure for younger children. A sandbox, large climbing rock and climbing pyramind built from interlocking cables are popular amenities, but the swings remain a favorite for kids. “We wanted this to be a one-of-a-kind, and it is,” landscape architect Dell Hatch said.
