We love parks at Knoxville Moms, and the Town of Farragut has so many of our favorites! Now they’ve added another one to our list.
The Town of Farragut was chosen by the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Foundation to receive a $750,000 play space in 2021. It is one of 10 play spaces that will be built across the state in celebration of the company’s 75th anniversary.
BlueCross Healthy Place grant applicants were invited to choose from six project packages based on the needs of their communities, and Farragut chose the Thrive and Play design, an inclusive, multi-generational space. It will be built behind Farragut Town Hall on Municipal Center Drive.
The new play space was constructed by Chattanooga-based PlayCore. No matching funds are required for the project.
It has a swing area, a 2-12 play area with ramped accessible play system with shade, slides, challenging climbing elements, merry-go-all, ground level musical play, sensory cove, and whirlwind seat.
Please make note that the play area does not have bathroom facilities yet and plans are to build some in the next fiscal year.
