On September 19, Sedgwick County will open NEW fun play areas in the Sunrise Boundless Playscapes playground area.
Our family has been watching for news of this opening, because we’ve seen the new areas under construction and they look like fun!
The boundless playground at Sedgwick County Park is already awesome, with separate play areas for different ages. It is also fully ADA compliant, so everyone can enjoy playing there.
The play area sits on 1.5 acres near the north end of Sedgwick County Park. It’s behind the Horseshoe Shelter and next to the new Plum Shelter.
It has age appropriate equipment for toddlers to elementary age children. There are separate swing bays for babies and toddlers, elementary age children, high back swings for children with spinal challenges, and the Sway Fun swing for those who use wheelchairs. There are climbing structures, slides, spinners and sound play equipment. (The sound play equipment is one of the new areas that will be open soon!)
The Sunrise Boundless Playscape is made possible by a public/private partnership. Sedgwick County maintains the park on a day-to-day basis, while community fundraising helps to fund it and volunteers from the Sunrise Rotary Club of West Sedgwick County hold two annual clean-up days each year.
The new play areas will be officially opened with an event at the playground at 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 19. The public is welcome to attend.
In case of inclement weather, the formal opening will be held in the nearby Plum building.
