KID VENTURE IS NOW OPEN. NEW HOURS ARE: DAWN TO DUSK. THE NEW SPLASH PAD WILL BE OPEN FROM MEMORIAL DAY TO LABOR DAY 2023. 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.
Kid Venture is open daily for community children to enjoy. The age limit inside the playground is 12 years old. At times, the playground might be closed due to large events on the grounds of the Anderson Sports & Entainment Center. Food and drinks are not permitted inside the Kid-Venture play area. The playground closes each day at dusk. Because it is a community playground, neither Kid Venture nor its adjoining picnic shelter can be leased for private events or parties.
