The ceremonial ribbon-cutting for the Heekin Family/PNC Grow Up Great Adventure Playground took place on Saturday afternoon.

The playground, located at The Banks, is across the Walnut Street Steps and Smale Riverfront Park.

Director of Parks, Willie Carden Jr., said the park is designed to incorporate motor skill development, learning and social development for children.

"We know that children learn through play, and that creative play inspires curiosity," said Cardern Jr. " Curiosity is the key to a passion for lifelong learning."

The playground will feature a rock canyon, swinging rope bridge, slides, climbing logs, stepping stones and a serpentine wall.
