Kids Colony 2
Kids Colony 2, Phase 2 Open for Play!
A grand-opening ceremony in May 2013 marked the end of many hours of hard work by city staff and volunteers, bringing to life the "Bridges Settlement" portion of Kids Colony 2 playground. The facility, located at 5151 North Colony Boulevard, also features one of the first all-inclusive playspaces in the region. See the photo gallery links below for a look back at the reconstruction of one of The Colony's most beloved playgrounds:

More than 20 years ago in 1993, residents and businesses in The Colony came together to build a playground. There was lots of planning, fund raising, scheduling, and building - all done by volunteers! This little town in Texas made a great effort and the result was a community built playground named Kids Colony. The years and hot Texas sun have taken their toll on the expansive wooden structures and the process has started to replace the beloved playground.
In 2011, Phase I of the rebuild of Kids Colony was completed with the addition of a nature themed play structure, pavilion, picnic tables and benches. The second phase of the rebuild of Kids Colony was completed in 2013, and includes an all-inclusive playground. It is a fun and exciting playspace which ensures children and adults of all abilities have access without barriers to play and develop of physical, cognitive and social skills.
