Creekwood Traffic Park Now Open!

September 23, 2020

The Creekwood Traffic Park is now open! The Traffic Park is designed as a space where children can learn basic rules of the road and biking skills in a safe environment for free. Families are encouraged to bring their bikes to enjoy the Traffic Park and the nearby White Tail Trail system. Creekwood Park is open seven days a week and closes each day at sunset. The Perry Chamber Leadership Class of 2020 contributed to this project. Members planned the traffic park’s design and facilitated painting the streets and intersections to appear as a scaled-down version of downtown Perry. Creekwood Park is located at 110 Ida Lasseter Circle and features a Splashpad, trail system, destination playground, and various sports fields. #WhereGeorgiaComesTogether
