If you have ever taken your children to the playground at the Pavilion at Port Orange they are now in for a surprise. The playground is being completely re-done and is all new! Halifax Health has replaced the old playground with a new one and the grand opening for it will be at their Summer Fun Festival!
The new playground has a backyard theme that kids will love! The playground is located near Lakeside Park, which is between the areas of Chuck E. Cheese and where the restrooms are located (back behind where the big fountain is). Plan to attend Halifax Health's Summer Fun Festival and see the grand opening of the new playground.
By the way, the old playground did not end up in a landfill (yay!). It was donated to their Child and Adolescent Behavioral Services (HBS) division, so the 3,000 kids in the community they help each year can use it. Their facility had the space for a playground, but was lacking anything fun for the kids to do in that space. Halifax Health took the necessary measures to have the old playground (which is only as old as the Pavilion, so around 5 years or so) moved over to the HBS day treatment program for children. Awesome!
Here's info about the Summer Fun Festival, which is when the grand opening of the new playground will take place:
