Farnsworth Playground

Did you know that there is a local fault in the earth's crust? Not only does it exist at Farnsworth Metroparks, but we have re-created it at the Boat Launch Area playground.  This play area is a great area for our younger visitors.  A larger than life turtle and Great Blue Heron welcome children to come explore the wonders of the riverine ecosystem.  The play area also includes a huge buckeye leaf and tunnel slides that lead to a kid-sized climbing wall.  As with many of our other playgrounds, accessibility is a key feature of this play experience.
