If you hear, “Mom, let’s go to the playground,” at least once day, then you’ll have two more reasons to say yes.
The Naperville Park District will celebrate the opening of Harris Fawell Park on July 15 and Wildflower Park on July 22. Both events will take place at 5 p.m.
Harris is a new playground and Wildflower has been renovated.
Playground designs were based on input from neighbors and include state-of-the-art play equipment, accessible to children of all abilities.
Both playgrounds have separate play structures for 2- to 5-year-olds and 5- to 12-year-olds.
The Harris Fawell Park playground includes monkey bars and additional shade trees along the sidewalk connection to Cowlishaw Elementary School. The Wildflower Park playground features a comet spinner and a 150-foot trail segment that connects the sidewalk to the loop trail at the park.
The celebrations will feature a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony, refreshments and giveaways, and a chance to see the new equipment and landscaping.
The Harris Fawell Park, 1120 Fort Hill Drive, is most easily accessed from the park entrance on Lakewood Circle. Wildflower Park also has multiple entrances; the most direct way to access the playground is at 606 Azalea Court.
In the event of inclement weather, the playground celebrations will be rescheduled for the following day: 5 p.m. July 16 for Harris Fawell and 5 p.m. July 23 for Wildflower Park.
