This odd BRAND NEW park is a sign of our economic times. The City of Delray Beach purchased the property and started clearing it during the "boom" times. Now that the money has run out, the only thing on property is the handicap accessible SHADED playground equipment. The grand plan involves building a large recreation center to serve western Delray residents but construction is on hold indefinitely. So, you have a children's playground right next to the pre-existing Senior Center. Incongruous but a new playground none-the-less.
