A new dinosaur-themed playground will be installed this summer in order to serve families with young to school-age children. Located at the end of Trophy Club Drive, the covered playground is adjacent to Trophy Club Park and will offer trail connectivity to the nearby neighborhoods for easy access. The playground includes seating and at least one table for parents.

The T-Rex playground draws on the imagination as children can climb and explore the giant skeleton bones of the prehistoric behemoth. Two decks provide look out points for the youngsters with slides for a quick escape. The lifelike play experience also includes a hatched egg for climbing, tunneling and hiding. The playground will also feature four swings: two arch swings and two infant seats.

The fenced playground will be the largest playground the town has built to date and is a joint project with the developer. The developer is providing $41,000 in materials and labor and the town will spend $155,590.76 of 2008 Park Bond dollars to help fund the new playground. The Parks & Recreation Board voted unanimously to spend 2008 Park Bond monies at the March 19 meeting.  A big “Thank You” to Trophy Club Families, who chose the design of the new playground.
