Two new playgrounds, at the Allegany State Park’s Red House Beach and Quaker Picnic Grounds, will officially open to the public in the spring of 2018. Most of the equipment at each site will be constructed from black locust in a natural style designed to encourage children’s curiosity about nature. Both playgrounds will have a fun mix of equipment for imaginative, explorative and active play, including a zip line and a giant spider web.
