SOUTH BEND -- Area children have a new place to play when visiting the University of Notre Dame. The university recently completed construction of a playground on part of the Irish Green, the park at the main entrance to campus. The play space is just east of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
Use of the playground is free and open to the general public, including South Bend-area families.
The play space is open every day until dusk.The fenced and gated area offers a swing set and a large jungle gym with ladders, a slide and a climbing rope. There's plenty of room for youngsters to romp.
University leaders decided to build the playground after receiving requests for such a facility for a long time, university architect Doug Marsh said."This area will be appealing to not only local families but also to those visiting the campus, including parents (and grandparents) with younger children who become restless during various athletics and other special events we host," Marsh said.The location is convenient to campus athletics venues, the performing arts center, the campus bookstore and Eddy Street Commons, he noted.The play space, designed by the Lakota Group of Chicago, was funded by two gifts to the university.
