A brand new playground just opened to the public at Millennium Park and it's a one of a kind.  If you've seen the show American Ninja Warrior, you might recognize some of the new installations and structures at Millennium Park.

The new Ninja Warrior themed playground is a completely unique design that is making its debut right here in West Michigan.  The Kent County Parks Department says that "This design is the first in the USA".

The new playground will be the 3rd in Millennium Park and is designed for older kids.  So, don't worry if this playground looks a little too advanced for your toddler, Millennium Park has other options available for your little one.

It may not be the best weather right now, but there are still several weeks of warm enough weather to enjoy the new playground before winter kicks off.  And who knows, maybe this playground will still be fun to play on with a few inches of snow on the ground.  It might add some additional padding to the ground if you fall off one of the structures.

You can check out a gallery of photos that the Kent County Parks Department posted on their Facebook page for the grand opening on October 15th.

Millennium Park is open year round from 7am until dusk, however the picnic areas and shelters are closed from November 1 through April 30.  The restrooms and drinking fountains are also out of commission during the winter.  You can follow all of the news from the Kent County Parks Department by signing up for their newsletter.
