Celebrate the Opening of Wallaroo Park Sept. 14

Celebrate the Opening of Wallaroo Park Sept. 14

September 04, 2018

You’re invited to help us celebrate the opening of Wallaroo Park — a very, very special park — from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14.

Wallaroo Park, located in our Deerbourne Ridge neighborhood, is interactive and fully accessible so all children can play.

We will provide snow cones, a DJ, popcorn and lemonade to enjoy while you try out the new play equipment including the innovative Sona Play Arch.

Developed by Yalp, the Sona Play Arch uses smart camera technology to measure the movements of those playing games using sound and movement.

The 12.5-foot tall, 16.4-foot structure is anchored by a play floor that features colors and numbers used in the interactive technology, all of which have increasingly difficult levels of play. Because of its size, the Sona Play Arch can also accommodate children in wheelchairs and is developed to be accessible for children with mental and physical disabilities.

The park also features an accessible slide, spinner play pieces and LED ribbons that serve as water misters. A water bubbler with seating will be a centerpiece of a central play area that also will include bird’s nest and spider web play pieces. Kids born to climb will love the lemongrass climbing wall playset and log trunk berm climbing play pieces. There also will be a swing set, seat walls and an open lawn.

To get to Wallaroo Park, enter Woodforest Parkway South from Fish Creek Thoroughfare and continue to Deerbourne Ridge. Take a right and follow the road past Stampede Sportsplex and Fox Trail Park. The park will be on your right.

We can’t wait to see your family there!
