New Life for a Popular Municipal Park
Harris Court is a 2-acre municipal park located off Main Street in Bean Station. The town applied for BlueCross Healthy Place funding in the hopes of bringing additional amenities and encouraging community enrichment in the space, which is a gathering spot for residents of all ages and abilities.
The BlueCross Healthy Place at Harris Court Park features a fully accessible, inclusive play space for children of all abilities. The main play structure is a fully ramped system allowing for a variety of play experiences at different levels. In addition to the main structure, there are several ground-level activities, including accessible swings and a spinning whirl.
Harris Court Park is located next to the Bean Station Senior Center. Fitness equipment in the BlueCross Healthy Place has been designed specifically to provide extra support for active, older adults who want to improve or maintain strength, balance and flexibility.
