[ARCHIVED] Waterfront Park playground now open!

Kids on Arsenal hill

BEAUFORT, S.C. (Aug. 28, 2020) – It’s official! The new playground at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park is now open for kids (and their parents!).

A ribbon-cutting was held this morning to unveil the Beaufort-themed park, which includes a climbing structure styled like a shrimp boat with rope nets for climbing; an Arsenal-styled structure that connects to a 5-foot green mound; a spinner, and slides and swings.

“We’re thrilled with the design of our playground,” said Linda Roper, director of Downtown Operations & Community Services. “We think parents and kids will love it.”

Great Southern Recreation installed the playground at a cost of $274,654; it was funded by a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant and City resources. The new playground features safety surfaces, including artificial turf on the mound, rubber mats, and engineered wood mulch made for playgrounds.

The former playground was installed in 2006, and its aging equipment needed continuing repairs.
