This is a newly renovated municipal park. Charnow park features two separate playground areas on astroturf and a series of small fountains for children to run around and play as they cool down. There is lots of seating for parents to rest and relax and a huge pavilion at the front of the park for parties, get togethers and what not. The playground on the left features some kind of crazy-looking climbing apparatus. On the right are some of those bouncy things on giant springs which children ride and swing forward and backwards. This is not the typical, prefabricated playground sprouting up all over the country.
From their website:
"Charnow Park has been totally transformed with four new picnic pavilions, a new entertainment pavilion and pergola-shaded seating areas. Two new playgrounds for different age groups offer innovative play equipment with an artificial soft grass safety surface underfoot. Custom-designed, colored concrete enhances the interactive water fountain. The site has been fully landscaped with native materials and utilizes special turtle-friendly lighting. Blue and sand-colored shell pavers as opposed to asphalt and the use of native landscaping have increased the park's green footprint. Scheduled for August opening. SOURCE
