When my kids were on the playground circuit, George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego was one of their favorite stops.
With the new and improved playground due to debut this Saturday, June 14, it promises to be one of your kids’ too.
Here is what you’ll find:
- Separate play areas for older and younger kids, each with its own age appropriate climbing and spinning activities. This is a big improvement from the people powered merry-go-round my kids both loved and hated that was not a one-size-fits-all attraction.
- Larger sandbox area perfect for digging things, hiding things, and scooping things.
- Twister game. Take a classic favorite and bring it outdoors—it’s bound to be more fun.
- Covered picnic shelter in prime viewing area which should prove a big hit with parents.
- Teen designed hopscotch area. Lake Oswego’s Youth Action Council designed a space-themed take on this popular game that offers kids challenges when they land on the rocket (jump four times), Saturn (spin five times) Earth (touch your toes), and Sun (strike a pose).
Come see for yourself between 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon this Saturday at 611 S. State Street. Festivities include free hot dogs and ice cream.
