Parks

Bea Bula Playground at Nichols Field
The playground is designed for children ages 2-15 and includes 3 slides, climbers, a tunnel and a handicapped access transfer platform. The playground surface is a recycled rubber that has been proven to reduce head injuries from a fall. The swing set has 2 toddler swings, 2 belt swings, and a handicapped swing. The playground has been inspected by the equipment supplier, as well as a nationally certified playground inspector, and meets all current safety guidelines and requirements.

We encourage all of you to take an active role in protecting this new addition to our park. It is a great community asset, and we all need to participate in keeping it this way. When you are driving by, or bringing your kids to play, please look around. If you see signs of vandalism, suspicious activity, or inappropriate use of the facilities, please notify the police.
