West U Recreation Center Playground Open And Ready For Play
The West U Recreation Center playground, 4210 Bellaire Blvd., is now open.
Thanks to the successful leadership and volunteerism of Park Lovers’ Ball 2010, co-chairs Jennifer Gatto, Daryl Hoover, and Kara Samples, the Friends of West University Place Parks Fund, Inc.,committed $150,000 to fund the Recreation Center playground.
The new, state-of-the-art playground offers a wide variety of fun activities for children ages 2 to 12 years. The unique equipment combines fitness play elements with a more traditional system, resulting in a more versatile playground that offers a powerful mix of fun, fitness, creativity and exciting challenges to get kids moving.
The entire area has a turf safety surface and is shaded by a large canopy to help kids stay safe from the sun and keep the playground looking great.
Additional amenities include four new benches and two new trash cans and recycling cans on each end of the play area to add to the efforts of keeping the area clean and green.
