Please list other playgrounds you’ve visited that you find interesting and engaging, as well as list specific play equipment or amenities you would like to see at Valleywood Neighborhood Park. We frequently visit the playground at the Wheaton Library. Some amenities we appreciate include soft accessible foam paddingsince we don't have to stop our toddler from eating woodchips or clean it off her clothes (one reasone we rarely go to Valleywood). I also appreciate fencing at that park so I don't have to constantly chase my toddler. It would be great if Valleywood had fencing in front of the hill. My toddler runs around alot and her running down the hill and slipping and falling or running into the street is a major safety concern
Please share any additional thoughts about Valleywood Neighborhood Park. We live a short walk from Valleywood but would go more if the we didn't have so many safety concerns with our child running down the hill into the street. We also don't enjoy cleaning woodchips out of her clothing every time we visit. High priority for our family in addition to addressing the steep walkway would be some safety fencing in front of the hill and updated ground to replace the woodchips. Some picnic tables and additional seating would also be great.

Please share any additional thoughts about the Mcknew Local Park concept plan. We would like a balance beam structure, and benches or seating under the shelter structure. Can the ground be rubber rather than wood chips?
