The Marsh Creek Park Playground located off of New Hope Road between the Buffalo Road and Marsh Creek Road stoplights in Raleigh, NC, was built to be accessible and “barrier free”, implementing wide, gradual sidewalks and a seamless poured-in-place rubber play surface.
The play area includes some interesting elements that stimulate sight and hearing. The design of the playground is geared around exploring senses, with lots of interactives for sound. In addition, herbs such as mint, sage and rosemary have been planted near the play area to arouse sense of smell.
The playground was constructed with the help of two $20,000 grants. One was from the All Kids Can program of the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust in cooperation with Boundless Playgrounds, Inc. The other grant came from Wake County and Eat Smart, Move More NC.
