German-made playground equipment was initially installed at the Waterworks Picnic area in 2005. The addition of the tower and bridge were added in 2009. The overall theme of the playground was to present a challenge to the children to climb to the top sections of the equipment, much like climbing to the top of the Presque Isle Lighthouse. The Partnership staff considered the project successful if at least 800 young people per week engaged in using this creative and challenging play area. The project far exceeded our expectations.
