BROAD STREET PARK & PLAYGROUND

For at least 75 years, the playground at Broad Street United Methodist Church has been the site for laughter and play for children. The new playground, designed and installed by Carolina Parks and Play playground specialists, started a year and a half ago. It was made possible through a generous bequest from Henry and Betty Jean Britt along with memorial money from Broad Street members. When people from the church and community come to Broad Street Park and Playground, they will find equipment for children with a full range of physical abilities and those of special needs. Broad Street Park and Playground is open to the public as a community playground and we are thankful that families attending the FA5 concerts can utilize this amazing space.
