New Allentown Park Now Open

Good news, everyone (but especially Lehigh Valley kids) — Allentown’s Cedar Creek Park playground is now open! Deemed as a destination playground, the Morning Call writes:

The 19,000-square-foot site is one of the largest, if not the largest, handicap-accessible playground in the region. It features equipment for all children and has a rubberized floor that helps soften trips and falls as well as accommodate wheelchairs.

“This is a great day for Allentown,” said Greg Weitzel, head of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. “We built this playground so all of our youth can be challenged and play outdoors in a safe and comfortable atmosphere.”

This is an exciting development and a great new place to visit in the region!
