KID VENTURE WILL BE CLOSED BEGINNING DECEMBER 13, 2021 UNTIL THE COMPLETION OF THE NEW PLAYGROUND. Kid Venture playground was built for the children of Anderson County through a volunteer organization, “Community Partners At Play.” The playground’s design features ideas provided by local children during community meetings with a design engineer. Anderson County donated space for the large wooden playground on an acre of land at the Anderson Sports & Entertainment Center. Community volunteers came together to build the structure. The playground is maintained by the Anderson Sports & Entertainment Center, other Anderson County departments and many local volunteers.
