Holy playground, Batman!

Prince George’s County is debuting a new park in Hyattsville on Friday, July 18.  It’s theme: comic heroes.

Parks and Recreation Magazine caught up with the park designer, Brenda Iraola:

In this case, the play surface enhanced the steel equipment and the theme – it has allusions to Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Captain America, all those great heroes,” Iraola says. She also directed contractors to use the brightly colored surfacing material to create big comic action word balloons in the style of the old Adam West-era “Batman” television show, containing fun words like “plop, splat, wow, zoom and zap,” Iraola says.

RSVP by July 17 to attend the opening ceremony.
