DELAPLANE, Va. - Children and their parents got to experience sky meadows park newest addition this morning.
Park staff have been envisioning a place for children to play at the park for four years, and today, that vision came to life.
The children's discovery area was built to create safe place for children to play using safe materials.
The discovery area includes a nature explore certified outdoor classroom -- the first of its kind in Virginia -- and exciting play stations focused on the parks themes of agriculture, nature and history.
"What we didn't want was big plastic slides and monkey bars and all of those types of things that you can get anywhere else, and the idea behind this is very subtle, you come here and you figure out what to do with it." says Timothy Skinner of Sky Meadow State Park
The discovery area will be open during normal park hours.
