PROJECT: Wilmer Park
413 S Cross Street, Chestertown, MD
Wilmer Park is a close-knit community in the historic small town of Chestertown, Maryland. The town decided to update Wilmer Park, a popular recreation area situtated on the Chester River. Their goals included adding play equipment that appealed to several different age ranges as well as adding equipment that could be accessed by children of all abilities.
The nautical themed playground meets those goals while adding fun design elements with color and pour-in-place rubber surfacing. The playground was laid out, mindful of age-appropriateness, with areas dedicated to ages 2-5 and ages 5-12. In between the two play structures are a group of swings including a Konnection® swing, designed for that special bond between parent and child. To ensure there are play opportunities for children of all abilities, the playground also includes a Volito swing, PlayEnsemble® musical instruments, and many engaging ground-level activities.
