In 2013, Wheeling Park District opened the newly redesigned Husky Park.
Various slides and climbing apparatus, as well as swings and individual play pieces, accommodate both two- to five-year-olds and five- to 12-year-olds. The individual play areas are sheltered by sail-like shade structures. The soft safety surface is constructed in circular shapes with contrasting colors. The old basketball court was removed and replaced with a larger, full-court. Bike racks, new trash/recycling receptacles, and landscaping were added.
The new entrance on Norman Lane, completed in 2011, “opened up” the park and now allows the new playground to be seen from the surrounding neighborhood.
“Collaborating with the community on projects like this allows us to understand and address their specific needs and wants,” said Jan Buchs, Executive Director of the Wheeling Park District. “The result is a space that will be enjoyed by the neighborhood for years to come.”
