Sherlock Forest Playground

The beautiful Sherlock Foest Playgroundsherwood_park_blog_post
Sherlock Forest Playground is located in East Grand Forks, Minnesota on 4th Avenue NW. Originally designed with the help of local elementary schools and built with community volunteers in 2003, it was well loved by children throughout the region. Sadly, in May of 2011, the playground was destroyed by fire. With the help of community volunteers, the playground was again rebuilt and is today, a busy place for local children. It is also not uncommon for out-of-the-area school children to enjoy field trips to the park each spring. Penny Pape and Katie Nelson spearheaded the reconstruction of the new playground and helped get it back to its former glory in short order. The playground, with picnic shelters and restrooms can be utilized spring, summer, and fall.

We love it when our grandpa and grandma take us to the Sherlock Forest Playground when we come to visit them. There isn’t anything like it where we live, so it’s a big treat for us! Sam, age 8
