about Children's Memorial Playground:
The playground was designed with a spiritual theme in the hopes of providing adults with a backdrop for religious instruction. The seven days of Creation are colorfully depicted in a rubberized walking surface that circles the playground; at the entrance to the park is a life-size sculpture of a kneeling Jesus, created by artist Tom Foppe. Children can also climb on oversized rock sculptures and swing to their hearts' content. A family restaurant is also located on the church's grounds.
