Ty Warner Park Facilities
Ty Warner Park is the largest park in the district totaling 36 acres and offers a large variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. At its core are three multi-purpose ball fields anchored by a concession building complete with handicapped accessible washrooms. Adjacent to this area is a courtyard laid out with benches, decorative lighting, stone masonry and brick work. Nearby is a large garden gazebo on a great lawn that can accommodate public gatherings and is host to our annual summer series of "Concerts in the park". Patrons of these functions will be surrounded in the traditional formal garden setting defined by a decorative fountain, park benches and path lighting.
Also in Ty Warner Park's core is an accessible community playground anchored by a large open air shelter of the same architectural style as the garden gazebo. The playground consists of a tot lot encouraging social play, imaginary play and development of fine and large motor skills. Tots will be safely corralled in their own playground away from the aggressive play of older and larger children. The older children will find a more challenging atmosphere encouraging them to explore physical challenges and social interaction on new, cutting edge play apparatus called the Galaxy series. Possibly the most exciting element of the playground is the zero-depth splash pad. Cushioned by a safe and soft resilient rubber surface, kids and adults can splash in the summer sun by the simple touch of a button. Based on a nautical theme, water sprays through an in-ground spout, whales tail, or maybe even an anchor will squirt or spray the water.
Ty Warner Park also offers passive recreation and opportunities to bond with nature. A picnic grove will be home to a timber structure to serve as a shelter with accessible washrooms. Restored woodlands and enhanced wetlands are connected through a prairie system surrounding the perimeter of the park linked by a series of interpretive signs. Along the perimeter, walkers and joggers can enjoy the natural surroundings on a paved 1 mile path. Cross country skiing enthusiasts will also have use of the interior and perimeter path system during the winter months. Two tennis courts and a sled hill provide additional opportunities for outdoor recreation
