Lions Park

Clearwater, MN USA


Playground Overview

Lions Park offers two age-appropriate spaces for children to play. The main Netplex® playstructure is anchored by a Skyport™ Climber, which features vertical net tunnels and latex-free rubber landings where kids can hang out. From there, kids can climb up and over on the Crest Climber, perfect their balance walking across the S-Disc Challenge or spin around and around on the Blender™ Spinner. Younger kids can explore in a developmentally appropriate space on the Smart Play®: Motion 2-5. While this playground design welcomes kids ages 2 to 5, Smart Play: Motion was designed with 16 activities that meet the unique needs of kids ages 2 to 3.

Shannon Essler-Petty a member of the Clearwater parks board commission speaks to the camera. She holds her daughter in her arms while she speaks.

Shannon: Part of the big thing that we knew we wanted was we wanted it to be handicap-accessible. And this park was fairly run down at the time, and so we needed to replace it.

Shannon voiceover: So, we started the process at looking at different structures. And we knew at the time that we wanted something big to attract people to our city. We have a sign that has all of the different animals that they can find within the structure, so they’re hidden throughout the structure. So kids then can play like a seek and find, you know, kind of game and look for all of the different animals within the structure.

Camera back to Shannon speaking to the camera.]

Shannon: All of the pieces in here were specifically designed for a purpose;

Shannon voiceover: like some sort of physical, cognitive type of play. And so, kids are playing, but then they’re also working on different skills like fine motor and as they’re playing… so this structure has so many cool aspects to it, it’s not just a playground. It’s been such a wonderful opportunity for our city and for the kids. I mean, I just love that this playground is used as frequently as it is right now. Now that it’s up, I mean this place is busy all of the time and that’s really what we wanted to see.
