New Smyrna Beach will open it's very first universally accessible playground this Saturday, May 2nd. It will be a place for all children who may not be able to use other playgrounds to play! New Smyrna Beach officials will celebrate the opening of the park from 10:00 am - 11:30 a.m. There will be activities for children following the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Rocci Park has been around for a long time and the old equipment was about 17 years old and was not ADA compliant. The new park features sidewalks, slides, interactive panels, bubble panels, a shade canopy and many opportunities for play. The park is designed for children from 5 years of age to 12 years of age and can accommodate 75 children at a time.
The renovations to Rocco Park were almost $59,000 dollars. The park was funded by the City's General Fund and an $18,800 grant from GameTime.
Rocco Park is located at 2490 Sunset Drive in New Smyrna Beach.
