Brooks' Playground


The Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department presented the Brooks' Playground project to City Council on Oct. 23, 2023, and aims to have the city's first inclusive playground open in 2024. Play pieces designed for ages six months to 13+ years will create an experience for children of all abilities, ages and communities.

Located near Shelter 6 in Cleveland Park, Brooks' Playground will be adjacent to the Julie Valentine Memorial, near Woodland Way and Lakehurst Street. Other planned improvements in that area include:

  • a new Shelter 6 accommodating six picnic tables
  • a new retention wall surrounding the Julie Valentine memorial
  • a renovated rain garden
  • a raised crosswalk with signal leading to the Hincapie Path of the Swamp Rabbit Trail
  • new restrooms, and
  • a relocated turf volleyball court
