Helen Howarth Park
Pinellas Park, FL USA
Kids ages 5 to 12 find plenty to do at this playground in Pinellas Park, Florida. The matchless GeoNetrix offers unscripted net play that engages their minds along with their bodies. Kids navigate through a variety of angled twists and turns as they scramble from one geometric shape to the next. This choose-your-own-adventure style of play encourages kids to continually try new routes. There’s spinning, bouncing and sliding fun, too, all under the vibrant colors cast by the translucent polycarbonate roofs. Finally, there’s the wacky, engaging design of SmartPlay®: Motion, created just for kids ages 2 to 3. Sixteen unique activities are built in to keep little ones busy for hours at a time.
