Oppenheimer Pleasure Grounds
Please Note: In preparation for our Community Fun Night, the playground will be closed on Thursday, July 12, from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm.
Located on North Second Street, this playground offers so much to do for everyone in the family. Around since the late twenties, this playground has seen many changes. In 1999, the Oppenheimer received it's most exciting facelift in the form of a water park.
Along with the new water park came new Playworld equipment, computers for our lab, and state-of-the-art playground surface. The surface, made from recycled tires, has a soft cushion feel under your feet.
For those that are looking to shoot a few hoops, we have two basketball courts for your pleasure. Let us not forget the kid in all of us that likes to swing. The Oppenheimer has two swing sets to accommodate the younger and older kids.
