Long Description:
Darrell's Dream is a fully-handicapped accessible playground. It is divided into zones for 2-5, 2-12, and 5-12 years old with slides, sand area, puzzles, climbing poles, puppet theater area, pipe bells, etc. There is a picnic pavilion and handicapped accessible restrooms. A Braille/audio trail based on the Naria series encircles part of the playground. A fully accesible treehouse has been constructed.

Darrell's Dream opened in April 2007 with $3 million funding from many individuals, groups, and businesses. It fills a valley with surrounded by a disc golf course, soccer fields, fishing area, and boat launch. A full slide show presented to the Kiwanis can be found at link

Unfortunately for travelers, this is not a quick swing-by stop. From I-81 Exit 59, head northwest for two miles towards Kingsport on TN36 (Fort Henry Drive) to the third traffic light (Sunoco, CVS on corners). Turn right on Colonial Heights Road for roughly half mile. Turn right on Warriors Drive. Stay on this narrow road as it crosses railroad tracks and into the park. At the bottom of the hill is parking for the playground. (If you miss the turn for Warriors Drive, then stay on Colonial Heights Road until it crosses railroad tracks. Turn right on Hemlock Road and enter the main entrance to the park. Follow the main park road around the lake to the same parking area.)
