The Playground at Countryside

Roanoke has a new playground and it is pretty incredible. 
 
 It has tunnels and ropes and an elevator lift.
 
The elevator lift was very popular.
 
Multiple slides
 
And an emphasis on music.  This is a game that plays different styles of music while the lights on the green boxes light up.  The kids have to run and hit them.  At times, there were ten kids doing this thing - all of them running and dancing in the middle.  Brilliant.
 
 A rocking aeroglider.

Scattered throughout are various instruments for playing music.

Completely interactive.

A music station for every kid.  And the playground is handicapped accessible.

Call us impressed.
Kind of makes me wish I was still a kid!

Maybe someone needs to make a playground for adults, next to the hospital.

When I grew up everything on the playground required using the muscles and not the brain. LOL All I can say is we were all lean and mean children.

It does look nice there. And oooooh, you've got weather warm enough for short sleeves!!! That's very promising, woohoo!

Wow---what an awesome playground. I love the idea that it includes music also. Music has been such a vital part of my life.

Have a great day. We are busy working in the yard. After the weeding, we are now mulching... Oh how I love spring.
Hugs,
Betsy

By far, one of the nicest and best playgrounds I've seen. So happy for the boys, and the other children as well.

Slamdunk said...

Very cool. There is a company about 45 minutes from us that manufactures fun designs like this and they have 2 theme parks where they model their products--something that the young people certainly get to play on and enjoy.
