Playgroundsz Box


Slide, climb and swing your way through this colorful attraction that is, quite literally, the playground of your kids' dreams. The playground’s design is based off of elements from drawings made by children asked to put crayons to paper to create their dream playground. Those sketches have now become a reality, so come live the dream!
