Schaper Park & Challenge Course - Great for Teens & Tweens

The Schaper Park Challenge Course encourages participants to be active, and the play area strives to make it possible for families of all ability levels to enjoy the park. The fitness challenge course is said to be designed for ages 13+, though we found that much younger kids also enjoy equipment that includes obstacles that participants navigate over, under, around, and through as they race against the clock. Attention parents of tweens and teens: this is a playground that will capture their interest as well as younger siblings!

There are two "challenges" that can be timed by stop clocks - a 40 yard dash (2 participants at a time) and a series of obstacles in a switchback layout. The turf is very soft and forgiving throughout the park. The only true "challenge" we experienced is that there is often a short line for the stop clock and it can be difficult with many kids playing at the park to get a clear path through the obstacle course. Don't let that stop you from trying, though!

Schaper Park & Challenge Course Challenges for all ages

The Luce Line Regional Trail travels through Schaper Park. The park includes parking and restrooms available for regional trail users. Bring a water bottle - the closest drinking fountain is a short walk away from the playground equipment.
