Getting to the top of the 20-foot tall, 360-degree enclosed slide at the new Northside Park playground is an adventure. Three slides on the 32-foot structure are configured at different heights to offer children, ages five to 12 years, a variety of exciting challenges. The multi-leveled enclosed stairs to the top of the imposing structure allow for crawl tunnels from one level to the next, many play opportunities, and a viewing platform.
The playground design, based on feedback from neighborhood residents and Hawthorne Early Childhood Center staff, features individual climbing pieces, belt swings, tot swings, tire swing, spinning and spring toys, free-standing infinity climber, and individual musical play panels all set on a cushioned safety surface. Seat walls, additional benches, and new trash and recycling receptacles complement the space. A new pathway loops the entire perimeter of the 3.06-acre park located at 200 Glendale Street adjacent to the Hawthorne Early Childhood Center. The new ball field is another dramatic improvement. New fencing, new backstop, and new player benches offer a much more player-friendly configuration.
With the exception of the fencing and asphalt path, all work on Northside Park was completed by Wheeling Park District staff.
