New playground in Grandview offers one-of-a-kind features

GRANDVIEW, Mo. - A brand new playground opened in Grandview, Mo., on Thursday and is considered the first of its kind in the entire country.

The highly unique Valley Park at 4000 E. 123rd Terrace has a 55-foot tube slide that moves riders at speeds between 7 and 12 mph depending on the type of pants being worn.

It has 30-foot climbing structures, rope ladders, bridges and a zip line.

The ground is a soft artificial turf that has been specially designed to help with drainage.

There's also musical chimes and a shelter.

The design allows kids to cross the entire playground without touching the ground.
