Sweet Shade Park
Sweet Shade park includes walking trails, basketball courts, and a playground for kids. The great thing about this playground, is that there are plans in the works to create a play structure that is more inclusive. These plans were implemented to give children with disabilities a space to play. There is a playground at this location currently, but once the plans and renovations are complete, the playground will be accessible to all!
