Mount Vernon Ohio Riverside Park and Playground

Children absolutely love the Deeley-Rudin Centennial Playground at Riverside Park in Mount Vernon, Ohio.  I think this new playground is "Super Fantastic" and it has really added a new dimension of fun to Riverside Park.  The Centennial Playground addition at the Mount Vernon Riverside Park was a major accomplishment and made possible by our local Rotary and required a $100,000+ investment with the help of local contributors and a few local businesses.  Our community owes a debt to those who made this gorgeous playground a reality.  Thank You!

The playground surface features a unique shredded soft rubber type floor which makes it MUCH more forgiving for children than the more common gravel base.  The playground features swings, multiple slides, a small walking bridge, a climbing area, a lookout, steering wheels and benches for parents so they can enjoy watching their children play.  This park and playground is so fun that when it's time to call it a day and head home the children will beg "can we just stay for 5 more minutes" and that is when you know they had a spectacular day.
