Rainbow Lake Playground is Memphis’ newest adventure playground–a space where kids of all ages can climb to great heights, exercise their imaginations, and bring creativity to their play.
The playground features two large climbing structures; a Big Green Mound with a hollow tree tunnel, slide, and sand pit; swingsets; chess tables; an old-fashioned merry-go-round; a do-it-yourself building area; and two noise-making sculptures. A Little Free Library offers books for anyone who wants to take a break from the activity. And because there are plenty of big, beautiful trees to shade the picnic tables and benches, the playground is a pleasant place for parents and kids alike.
The reimagined Rainbow Lake Playground, opened in summer 2013, was designed by ANF Architects, built by Viktor Hall Construction, and managed by Overton Park Conservancy. Funding came from these wonderful donors. If you’d like to contribute to ongoing maintenance of the playground, you can make your gift here.
