Now Open

Welcome to the James A. Henderson Playground at The Commons! The indoor playground features infant/toddler areas, slides, a tunnel and a two story Luckey Climber. We created better separation between the toddler area and the rest of the playground, making it safer for our youngest community members to enjoy the playground. Additional play elements encourage children to play together and create opportunities to socialize as well as adding more sensory experiences. The playground is free and open to the public during the hours listed below. Masks are optional.
