Celebrate Spencer Smith Park
August 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join me for coffee, treats & play on August 17th, everyone welcome!
Welcome to the newly updated playground at Spencer Smith Park. Situated on the waterfront in downtown Burlington, this playground is a unique destination in our city, offering the perfect spot to take in the lake, the pier or one of Burlington’s signature festivals and events.
Work to enhance the playground began in 2017 with an online Love Your Playground survey where we asked residents to tell us about the play features they’d like to see in city parks. Thank you to everyone who took the time individually or with your families to share your input.
The new playground design and equipment reflects many of the features you told us were important to you, including,
•New rubber safety surfacing in place of wood chips to ensure the playground is fully accessible for mobility devices and strollers
•New playground equipment with an accessible ramp, a two-person slide, below deck play and multiple climbing structures
•The first 20m long zip line in Burlington, with built-in safety features for kids and adult play
•An accessible intergenerational spinner and new swings with high-back seats for support
•Equipment that offers areas for shade, e.g. the large tiki hut roof, the ship sails and the palm trees.
•Areas for a quiet retreat from active play at the palm tree hangouts, and under the tiki hut at seating pods and storefront.
