Recently renovated, the large sensory play area is themed around the city's historical landmarks, and also has ziplines, climbing walls and a splash pad to keep little ones busy, as well as walking trails through the surrounding woods. With picnic areas, toilets, plentiful parking and a new bus route from the city, the playground has all you need for a fun day out.
