Putnam County Parks and Recreation brings unique play and fitness opportunities to Valley Park in Hurricane, West Virginia. The fitness area includes a GT Challenge Course Pro 3000 with timed obstacle course events, turf and a 40 yard dash.
The play space is set up like a wheel cog or sundial. At the center, you will find an Omni TriNet on poured-in-place safety surfacing as the focal point. The four surrounding areas are divided up nicely into a 2-5 play area, 5-12 play area, a sensory play area and swings.
The 2-5 play area includes a GT Powerscape play structure, GT Jams Beat Club, Discovery Cave and Expression swings. The 5-12 play area includes a fully ramped accessible GT Powerscape/Ionix Hybrid play structure with lots of fun and challenging climbing activities and Mini Sky Runner. The sensory area includes the GT Sensory Wave with adaptive switch technology, Merry-Go-ALL, melody chimes, cantana chimes and concert trio from Freenotes Harmony outdoor musical instruments. The fourth and final play area includes swings with belt, tot and both 2-5 and 5-12 Zero G adaptive seats.
Three of the play areas include unique GameTime ShadowPlay® pieces. ShadowPlay® gives the playground another element while adding color, interest and fun. Those areas are completed with engineered wood fiber safety surfacing, surrounding walkways, site furnishings and shade. Valley Park has been designated as a Playcore National Demonstration Site for both 7 Principles of Inclusive Playground Design and PlayOn! Promoting Physical Activity.
