The location of the new play area previously contained a small play area and picnic tables. Fairmount park once contained a small amusement park with a carousel. The new universally accessible play area was theme to recreate the amusement park atmosphere. A 60’ diameter shade structure at the tot lot replicates the original carousel. Swings, splash pad, sand play, sensory walls, floor chimes and whimsical play equipment encourage children and adults of all ages to linger and play.
