NORWALK, Conn. Benjamin Bulger visited the Stepping Stone Museum for Children this week, but the 4-year-old got waylaid on his way home to Stonington. "We saw this wonderful contraption," his father said, as his son frolicked under spraying jets of water.
The "wonderful contraption" is the finishing touch to Devon's Place, the playground next to Stepping Stones. Mike Mocciae, director of the city's Department of Recreation and Parks, said work was completed two weeks ago with funding through Norwalk's Capital budget process.
Benjamin liked running though the spiral tubes that spray water on and off. Other children were enthralled sitting on a turtle that shoots water up through its shell.
"It's very nice," said Martha Gomez, who brought her 15-month-old daughter to the park. She said they came over "once in a while" before, but now, it's almost every day. "I really love it," she said.
Do you think Devon's Place should be just for kids? Or should grownups play, too?
