The Arizona Coyotes Foundation and Glendale’s Parks & Recreation Division teamed up with KaBOOM! to design and build the Power Play Playground at Bonsall Park North. The design features a tire swing, rock wall climbing area, slide, monkey bars and several other fun features.
The playground was built in one day with the help of nearly 200 volunteers. The Arizona Coyotes Foundation provided a $100,000 grant to the project. The grant also provided revitalization projects to the hockey rink, racquetball courts and ramada areas.
This community park, also referred to as "Chicken Park" by longtime Valley residents, is split by Bethany Home Road. The park is 17 acres total with 10 acres on the north side of Bethany Home Road and 7 acres on the south side.
