One of the most exciting and unique playgrounds for children of all ages has come to Augusta, Kansas. This creative playground located on North Ohio Street in Augusta, Kansas in Shryock Park on the City Lake has truly been a product of community effort. Nearly everyone in the community has played a part in some way in making this project happen. Even school-aged children played a part in the design phase, contributing their ideas that helped shape the design of the park.
Upon visiting the park, parents will be impressed with the design. There is a shaded bench area where parents may sit and read while their small children play. The park is entirely enclosed with only one entry and exit – right by the covered bench. So children won’t be able to wander off without mom or dad noticing. The park is divided into two general areas. One for larger children and the other for smaller children. A fence divides the two areas. Swings that can accommodate handicapped children are available in both sections. The grounds are covered with cedar mulch providing a soft “landing” for children who might be prone to climbing and then falling. Safety and fun are both incorporated into the park.
