Plano Playground, a gift from The Medical Center of Plano:
No matter the weather, it’s a great day to play at the park – that is, the new children’s play park at The Shops at Willow Bend.
With a nod to Plano and its historic Haggard Park, the mall’s new 1,960-square-foot Plano Playground will welcome little ones with a gazebo. Once inside, they’ll enjoy climbing on the soft, one-of-a-kind play pieces including a water fountain, slide, sandbox, teeter totter, fire truck, ambulance and merry-go-round, all constructed of hand-sculpted, kid-friendly foam. Kids can rock and ride the mascots of local high schools -- Plano East, Plano West and Plano Senior High. A hot air balloon lights the play action from above.
Plano Playground is a gift to mall visitors from The Medical Center of Plano. Along with an interactive game wall that looks like the hospital, a scavenger hunt in the play area will feature hidden hospital icons for children to find, evoking the popular Highlights magazine often found in doctors’ offices.
The multi-sensory play area includes sound-chip technology, adding surprise and delight to complete the experience. The play area is suitable for children 42 inches or shorter.
A weekly program that helps both expectant and new mothers live, love, and laugh as they lead their families to a healthy and happy lifestyle. The group gathers at 10 am every Wednesday morning at The Shops at Willow Bend in Dillard's Court. As participants socialize with other moms and their babies, and listen to a weekly health tip from the registered nurse facilitating the group, they gain confidence in their ability to perform in the new role of mother. The importance of exercise is emphasized when participants make a circuit of the mall with their strollers. There is no charge for this organized gathering, which offers abundant opportunities to connect with other mothers and babies.
