Taylor Chebet Twitchell Playground

Little Falls, MN USA


Playground Overview

This playground in Little Falls, Minnesota, is named after a young child who will never be forgotten, and it also commemorates an unforgettable historic event: Lindbergh’s transatlantic flight. Informative signage details this landmark event. A custom Spirit of St. Louis airplane sits atop the ZipKrooz® as kids ages 5 to 12 experience the feeling of flight below. On the PlayBooster® playstructure, there are plenty of other ways to soar, whether it’s racing across a bouncy bridge, or sharing a ride on the Flywheel® Spinner with friends, or zooming down any of the multiple slides. Bright colors and a wealth of unscripted play events create hours of fun that always seem to fly by too quickly.

Cathy: Of course, we love it.

Cathy voiceover: I think it provides all of the age groups and we’re hearing from people all across the community how wonderful it is. And not only just Little Falls. But we’re hearing from people from Brainerd. Somebody just told me that they talked to somebody from South Dakota. That just said we don’t have anything like this in our community.

Jessica voiceover: and they’re just having a blast especially on the zip line.

Camera is mounted to the ZipKrooz pointed away from the rider. A child jumps on the swing and they glide down to the other end of the ZipKrooz bay.]

Cathy voiceover: Why I think the zip line is one of the biggest features out here that I think it attracts not only to more kids but even adults love it. I see that there’s lines all the time with kids waiting to get on it so that’s probably the favorite piece that’s out here.

Jessica voiceover: and my nine-year-old boy especially has really enjoyed playing on the equipment because it’s… it’s so different.
