What is the Sensory Garden Playground?

The Sensory Garden Playground is a combination of sensory-integrated playground equipment and amenities along with gardening areas. The 37-acre facility is being developed in phases as funding becomes available.

We’re building the 5 to 12-Year-Old Playground!

Construction to take place in late 2024.

Visitors can look forward to a racehorse-themed playground with bridges and other accessible amenities that will offer more play opportunities, like climbing, sliding, and gathering areas.

Open-Air Shelter

Help us build an open-air shelter that will accompany the new 5 to 12-year-old playground.
