Burnside Park in the heart of Providence, close to WaterPlace Park and City Hall, now has a new playground for kids of all abilities: Brandon’s Beach.

The park’s custom design evokes the look of a marina, with nautically inspired poles and ropes – honoring the seaside lifestyles of the Ocean State.  The playground is appropriate for toddlers and young children, and offers a lots of sensory-rich equipment, including pagoda bells, drums, and music pipes. It also features classic swings, slides and spinners.

Brandon’s Beach was designed by Rhode Island native Tiffany Rodrigues for internationally renowned Kompan Play Equipment, and was inspired by Providence’s historic harbor, where large ships would dock in the Providence River.

Come and play!
