Additionally, visitors to the park will find some shaded playground equipment, a central plaza with abundant seating, two lawn play areas, and a 1/5 mile concrete walking loop..

An ADA ramp provides access to all elevated features in the 2-5 year old area.  Additionally, there is also ADA access to the two level Dynamo Apollo Spinner and two transfer platforms in the 5-12 year old area.

The WOW Park is the largest play area in the Leisure Services park system. The equipment is designed for agility, balance, imagination, motion, tactile/sensory experience, social engagement, and upper body strength.  It offers a variety of play experiences, both passive and active and is located near a wooded passive play area, as well.

This project is part of a SPLOST 2011 project for Leisure Services. Office of Park Planning staff worked closely with citizens and SPLOST staff to bring this project to fruition. This project creates a safe atmosphere for people of all generations to learn, create, and play, and will be enjoyed for years to come.
