The playground at Legion Keener Park is remarkable in its
design. The first impression is one of a combination wooden
castle and play palace. There are slides, swings, mazes, and
towers for the kids to climb. It is well-designed to capture
the imagination of children.
The paved track, which meanders throughout the park and
circles back upon itself, is equipped as a fitness trail.
Stops along the track recommend stretches, sit-ups, jumping
jacks, pushups, etc., and there are balance beams and other
