Looks like this will be a lovely play area for the kids when it is completed. I believe that I sign I read anticipated completion in April 2018. Now you can walk through it on pathways around the construction.

Be warned you can't simply turn up and play like any other playground. They only allow entry at specific times (e.g. on the hour) and no matter how much your child wants, will not come over and open the gate at other times. Such a...More
