Danger Alert Revisited – Heather Farm Park “Climbing” Hills in Walnut Creek

Last November when the Heather Farm all abilities playground opened in Walnut Creek I posted about the popularity of the “climbing” hills that were used to slide down with cardboard boxes and pointed out the danger of hitting one of the boulders placed right near the hills. Based on a recent visit it looks like a few of the boulders have been removed which should improve the safety as kids slide down.

Of all the playgrounds this is my favorite one, lots to do!

Last October we learned that an extension to Jack’s Restaurant and Bar would be added next to their downtown Pleasant Hill location and construction has now begun on the bar to be called Jack’s Taps. Look for an opening in, late spring/early summer. They will feature, “20 beers on tap, mostly locale and west coast breweries. plus a unique bottle selection.”
