You’ll know where it is when you hear all the shouts of glee by the kids (and adults) having the time of their lives.

Open from 10am to 4pm through Aug. 10, HB is one of the few such playgrounds in the state, supervised by a city Community Services Department. It has rules like “No Running,” “You must wear closed-toe tennis shoes (or stronger) covering the entire foot” and “Don’t Throw Things.” But it’s really a great place for kids to learn skills like carpentry (they provide hammers, nails, boards and other equipment); balance (walking across a rope bridge); responsibility (putting borrowed tools back) and getting along with other rafters on the 50-foot pond. It’s also a wonderful anti-stress place to forget problems, step back in time and focus on fun. Read more…>  Have fun!
