  • Also known as Castle Park, the Stewart Vincent Wolfe Creative Playground is a unique ADA playground that has been recognized as one of the largest creative playgrounds, as well as one of the top 20 playgrounds in the country, for being “impressive, accessible and inclusive.” Local school students provided input on the playground’s design, and volunteers of all ages worked together on the actual construction. Sadly, in late 2015, most of the playground was destroyed by an arson fire. The community immediately pulled together again to rebuild, and while the insurance helped fund most of the new playground, it was the donations that helped make it “Bigger, Better, and Safer.”
