Scott Carpenter Park playground refresh blasts off this spring

The park's playground is getting a refresh this spring. Some of the older playground equipment at the park will be removed and replaced. But don’t worry, the rocket ship, asteroid climbing structure and the sand play crater will stay.

Nature Play Opportunities

Scott Carpenter Park and Pool is largely aimed toward programmed and structured recreational activity. Despite this design, children often play along the buffers of the park and on the playground, which contains crater and rock play structures, which emulate features found in nature.
