The playground at Walnut Creek Metro Park has been be renovated to provide a leading, accessible playground for children of all ages and abilities in North Austin. The design features a loop exploration path through a sensory garden, rubber safety surface with a variety of ground-level play opportunities, and an iconic platform structure that thematically aligns with the natural areas surrounding the playground. An area of the park has also been transformed into the Park & Recreation Department’s first official Nature Play Space. The signature play feature is the Fairy Pavilion, re-homed from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center’s Fortlandia exhibit. Additional nature play features include all-natural elements that invite children to climb, build, and explore the space. This nature-play expansion was supported by a grant from St. David's Foundation.
