New Nature-Inspired Playground Equipment Coming Soon to Henry Timrod Park!
If you are looking for a unique playground option, Timrod Park's latest equipment may be the answer for you. The City of Florence Parks and Recreation Department started construction last week on bringing the newest line of playground equipment to Florence. The nature-inspired playground equipment, replicates fallen trees, rocks and even climbing boulders to provide the perfect opportunity for creative outdoor play. The Parks and Recreation department worked closely with the Timrod Park Neighborhood Association in selecting the nature-inspired playground equipment. Constructed of hand-painted concrete taken from molds of a variety of tree species. The logs and hopping rocks are strategically placed in a linked- play system so kids can control their climb and choose the easy or more challenging route without even touching the ground. Kids will be encouraged to stretch their imaginations along with their muscles, playing longer and more freely as they jump from one adventure to another. The nature-inspired playground blends the beauty and wonder of the natural world with the safety in an innovative and inspiring play environment. The updated playground will also include new swing sets, universally accessible wood fiber surface area, a paved walking path and multi-sensorial rain garden area. Local schools are welcome to contact the City's Recreation Department to set up a spring field trip today at 843.665.3253.
