Get ready. Get set. PLAY!
The first TerraPark in Lancaster County is located at Florin Hill Apartments in Mount Joy! Here are a few shots of neighbors and kids enjoying this lovely neighborhood amenity:
What is a natural playground?
This is not your status quo, “slide and monkey bar” kind of playground! Natural playgrounds are outdoor play spaces built in harmony with nature, designed to provide opportunities for children to climb trees, roll down hills, play in sand, scale rocks, and invent new games. At the TerraPark at Florin Hill Apartments, children can play in a space that challenges their cognitive creativity and that encourages outdoor play and imagination.
At Florin Hill Apartments, flat land in the front of the neighborhood was transformed into a rolling hill with a stone wall on one side that’s perfect for climbing. The best part? A 15’ slide built into the other side of the hill that enters a huge sand box – definitely a favorite for children of all ages!
TerraPark at Florin Hill Apartments has received rave reviews from residents. The TerraPark offers plenty of flat, green space great for old-fashioned games or throwing and kicking a ball. TerraPark’s fire pit amphitheater provides a central location for neighborhood activities and is a great spot for roasting marshmallows!
At the grand opening, children ran up the rock path towards the slide and had a blast in the sand box as parents with infants pushed strollers along the walking trail. Many enjoyed sitting by the fire pit, although on the unseasonably warm fall afternoon, the fire was a little too warm! Future plans of how the fire pit can be used were contemplated by our grown-up residents, while the children worked hard to find the right spot and ideal distance to get that perfectly toasted, gooey marshmallow.
The TerraPark™ at Florin Hill Apartments is another great addition to an already exceptional neighborhood, which recently was named Best Neighborhood in Pennsylvania by 10,000 Friends of Pennsylvania.
