New Park in Town - Star Park

Photo by CMR
Thought I would do a little review on the new park in our town for locals.  Star Park is located in Ferndale, Washington.  It was built completely by volunteers and designed in part by elementary students.  My middle school student got a chance to help build.  This was definitely a community project.
Cool Swing Thing

I don't have little kids anymore but my big kid (17) wanted to check it out. There were a number of swings even a bucket seat for special needs.  But this yellow disk swing was extremely popular.

Ferndale is well know for it's tagged Metallica Bridge over the Nooksack River so as a parent I appreciated the tagged Ferndale Bridge.  I thought that was a nice touch.

There is huge slide for the little thrill seekers  that comes out through this tree.  This is similar to the park in Lynden. 

There was also a nice Mt Baker climbing wall

If you are in the area, check Star Park out.  I only highlighted a few of the features of this lovely new park.  There is also the bow of a ferry that has a rocking platform, monkey bars of various kinds, fireman pole, smaller slides, and merry go round. It is fenced and has a nice sized toddler area as well.  It is on the backside of Pioneer Park near the ball fields.  After playing ,take a stroll on the river walk and see the totems or play in the fountain near main street.
