On three acres of City Park is Fun Forest, the ultimate children's playground, imagination center and family adventure area! Originally built in 1995 by over 1,800 volunteers from private, public, and community sectors, and winner of the Virginia Recreation and Parks Society "Best New Facility in Virginia" award in 1996, the playground has an older children's area which encourages gross motor-skill development and features a dragon, three-way underground telephone, shaky bridge, dolphin tunnel slide, and many more challenges for the older child. A new section was built by volunteers in 2011 after fire damaged a section of the playground.
Many of the attractions are handicapped accessible, with paved paths, slides, swings, picnic tables and benches to accommodate wheelchairs. There's a wall decorated with tiles of hand prints, messages, and signatures of early contributors. There's something for everyone.
