Since 2015, Hempfield Township Parks & Recreation has worked to replace our aging play structure. Installed in the 1990s, the main playground in Hempfield Park had seen better days. Installing a new playground is a major financial and planning undertaking, but we knew the time had come! With over $4 million in improvements already completed at Hempfield Park, installing the new inclusive, destination playground would bring them all together.
Hempfield Township is now seeking our communities support. Our goal is to raise $200,000 to support the purchase and installation of our new inclusive playground at Hempfield Park.
We are going to build a playground that is accessible to all, stimulates our children’s imaginations, provides an opportunity for truly inclusive play for children and young adults of all abilities, and will be a gathering place from our youngest to our oldest residents and visitors. This durable playground will be here for the next 30 years, bringing joy to our children now, and their children later!
Slide down the 12' tall, double corkscrew slides as you explore the Play Tower! The Play Tower is designed for children ages 5 to 12, and offers many different play activities. From slides to climbers, the Play Tower provides children with a space for imaginative play with all of their friends!
The Swing Zone features 7 swings, from traditional swing seats to the parent-child SelfieSwing! The Swing Zone is designed for children 2 to 12 years old but offers many opportunities for inclusive play for children and adults of all ability levels. We can't wait for you to try them all!
The Kinder Tower is a ramped structure for children just learning to explore the world and take risks! The Kinder Tower features 4 slides, a sensory arch climber, and the Kiddie Car Wash for interesting textures, and stimulating colors provide an immersive, sensory experience. The Kinder Tower is designed for children 2 to 5 years old.
The Music & Motion zone features two spinning, motion activities, and a one-of-a-kind music area! The Selfie Swirl and Inclusive Orbit provide two different spinning experiences, with the Inclusive Orbit being flush to our poured-in-place rubber safety surfacing. This allows for people using mobility devices to easily enter and use the Inclusive Orbit.
The Music area features 7 musical play pieces, from cymbals to drums. This unique play area promotes inclusive play for people of all ages and abilities. Bring your children to our Summer Concert Series and let them make some music of their own!
