Playground, Park, Public, Cost?

This Indian-themed playground was designed after Berwyn Heights’ earliest residents — a group of Algonquian people known as Nacotchtank. The littlest of visitors to the park can climb play structures shaped like teepees or oversized dream catchers, sit in an Algonquian canoe, talk with friends by custom cornstalk Talk Tubes or interact with the artistically designed concrete totem pole.The playground is alongside the Indian Creek Hiker-Biker Tail. Indian Creek is nearby and a (usually) dry stream runs along one edge. The play items are connected to different Native American themes (climbers shaped like tipis, a canoe, thunderbird-shaped support for swings, Navajo blanket patterns on the ground, totem pole, etc.) and small informative plaques discuss the different items and how they're connected to different tribes/cultures. There's also a "find the arrowheads" game.
