We Could Be Looking At The "Future Of Playgrounds" And Construction Is Underway Near Dallas, TX.

Its being called a bunch of things: "The Crown Jewel Of Playgrounds", "One-Of-A-Kind", "Glow In The Dark".

But the main thing I and your kids will call it is "the coolest playground ever" and its coming to North Texas so if you want to see it and play in it, plan a road trip.

The City of Farmers Branch is getting set to open JOYA At Oran Good Park.

 

Translated as Jewel in Spanish, Joya will be the crown jewel of playgrounds in Farmers Branch according to the city's website. Using data collected from focus groups with the true “fun experts”.... kids, the concept for Joya was developed.

Joya will be an inclusive glow playground that, while fun in the daytime, will come alive at night with interactive features that glow, allowing for day and evening play.

According to the city, the area will feature an 18,000-square-foot main playground and a 7,000-square-foot tot playground.

The tot playground, for children ages 2 to 5, will be fenced with two gated entrances and will have play areas full of lights.

The playground, which the city says they hope to open this fall, will be located at the corner of Tom Field Road and Valley View Lane.

The design and construction of the project are funded by a grant from the State of Texas Parks & Wildlife and the Federal American Rescue Plan Act. You can already see the "sphere" is being erected in the video below from Farmer Branch Parks and Recreation's Facebook page.
