Located at 60th Street and Paradise Lane (6002 E. Paradise Lane), Jackrabbit Park is comprised of 17 acres. The basin-style park first opened in 1986, but recently, city officials and community members celebrated the opening of its new playground.
The new playground features climbing structures and slides for those ages two to 12, as well as toddler and youth swings, and seat spinners. Also included in the play area are 11 ADA accessible play activities and a wheelchair accessible dome-shaped climber.
The ground level of the entire playground is covered in ADA accessible engineered wood fiber. Shade canopies are built into the play structures, and several new benches and a drinking fountain are located along the perimeter.
The project cost $110,000 and was funded by the voter-approved Phoenix Parks and Preserve Initiative (PPPI).
In addition to the playground, it also offers ample green space and area lighting.
