Montgomery Parks will be presenting several options for updates to the 2 to 5 year old children’s play area at Kemp Mill Urban Park at the December, 2020 KMCA meeting. Below are descriptions and concept drawings for each option.
- Option 1: Remove the existing panels. The playhouse would remain in its present location. Add a spring toy at the opposite end of the area and add 3 seating pods in the middle where the existing panels are located. The seating pods can be used as seating or as stepping “stones”.
- Option 2: The existing house and one of the existing panels to remain. Add a cluster of seating pods at the end of the area closest to the shopping center.
- Option 3: Remove the existing panels. Relocate the house to the opposite end of the area near the shopping center. Add a spin cup where the house is currently located. A child sits in the spin cup which is enclosed and then it is spun with the help of a parent or another child. A different interactive panel would replace the existing ones in the middle.
- Option 4: Remove the existing panels. Leave the house where is it and add a line of seating pods in the middle. At the lower end, add a spin cup at the lower end of the site near the shopping center.
