Join us in celebrating the opening of Anansi’s Web, our first brand new playset in 21 years!
Anansi’s Web was designed, created, and installed by artist Garr Ugalde and represents the West African folktales of Anansi the spider, the keeper of all stories and wisdom. He’s also a trickster who obtains his goals through various ruses. The new set features three vertical climbing webs between four posts featuring characters from an Anansi tale, including one of Anansi himself.
