Sibley Park in Mankato, Minnesota, is home to a one-of-a-kind, farmstead-themed destination playground. Two PlayBooster® playstructures look like barns and a silo, brilliant in their traditional red and white colors and featuring plenty of climbing, sliding and exploring adventures. Located next to a small petting zoo, this playspace features realistic-looking chickens, foxes and horses sculpted from Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC). It’s the one time children can climb in with the muddy pigs and not get in trouble. Whimsical field of cornstalk climbers, a wagon seesaw, custom tractor and concrete hay bales compete for the attention of kids ages 2 to 12, making it hard to leave for the day.
