A one-of-a-kind playground is coming to Farmers Branch this summer — and get this — it glows in the dark.
Located at Oran Good Park (13300 Dennis Ln.,~40 minutes northeast of downtown), Joya is named for the Spanish word for jewel and will be the first glow-in-the-dark playground in Texas.
Joya will feature:
- 18,000-sqft main playground (for ages 6+) with a six-level climbing sphere, zipline, swings, obstacle course, and seating that glows
- 7,000-sqft fenced tot playground (for ages 2-5) with a natural sensory play area and turf
Joya is funded by $4 million from the Federal American Rescue Plan Act and a $750,000 grant from Texas Parks & Wildlife.
Construction will begin later this year and is slated to wrap up late August. Keep up with the progress on Facebook.
