Well, they did a lovely job remodeling Crescent Park and I love what they did! You can find Crescent between 107th Place and 108th and from Hoyne to Bell.
They kept the color palette to a minimum and the dark purples and blues blend in nicely with the beautiful trees and foliage in this medium sized park in the middle of a historic residential area. There are unique playground items and it is very accessible and user friendly for small children. Parents can sit and relax on the new benches and have a clear view of their child at all times! The park also has a beautiful new baseball diamond and the two tennis courts are often empty and waiting for the next player. Take advantage of these warm days and squeeze in a visit before it is too late! Then you can still enjoy the park on your brisk walks along the paths in the snow!
