Mango Park's New 8,000-Square-Foot Playground to Open Friday
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Oct. 13, 2021) - Mango Park & Recreation Center will celebrate the opening of its new 8,000-square-foot playground for children of all abilities on Friday, Oct. 15.
The playground includes numerous play units designed to encourage children to stay active and have fun, including intergenerational swings that allow adults and children to swing together facing each other. In addition to traditional elements such as swings and slides, the playground includes rope- and rock-climbing structures, musical elements, and synthetic turf.
The playground is only one part of the recent improvements Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation has made to the park and recreation center. The project also included additional amenities at the two dog parks, including shade shelters with decorative benches, a dog wash station, upgraded dog agility equipment, and renovated restrooms with ADA-accessible sidewalks. The basketball courts and rental shelters were improved, and the recreation center now has a renovated patio area, upgraded catering kitchen for community rentals, and more storage.
