Grand Junction Plaza in Westfield brings everything wonderful about the community to one central location. This space was imagined as a hub for community and connection, a place where people can gather together to make memories. Plan a trip with your family to enjoy the playground or catch an outdoor movie or live event!
Exciting Playground for All Ages
When you arrive, you can’t miss the beautiful playground, even from a distance. The impressive design boasts a massive climbing feature, as well as several smaller playground structures. The first thing you’ll notice is the turf underneath your feet. It is so soft and the perfect material to kick off your shoes and run around without worrying about hot concrete or splinters from mulch. There is a designated climbing structure designed for toddlers and preschoolers as well. It has several engaging rope features, as well as a suspended leap pad for jumping and climbing. My toddlers loved this space, and I was glad to have some options available for little ones who might not be ready for the big climbing “mountain” nearby!
Speaking of, it is no exaggeration to say this is one of the biggest and most impressive climbing structures you will ever encounter at a playground! There are four different entrances to climb, each with entirely unique challenges. Climbing ropes, rock walls, and rubber materials are used to create a highly interesting space to explore. Underneath this space, you will find seating, ladders to scale through the middle, and more.
Around these two main climbing structures are other fun things to do, such as spinning seats, a toddler rocking car, and a ninja climbing rope towards the back. The playground is very conveniently located in the Plaza. It is steps off the main trail, right next to the Meadow Lawn.
The Meadow Lawn is a unique area, where kids can play in a large field, surrounded by great seating options for parents. Here you’ll find lawn chairs where you can lay back, relax, and enjoy the sunshine while the kids play. This would be a great space for frisbee, soccer, football, or any other lawn game you would like to bring and enjoy together as a family.
Community Events at the Amphitheater
Nearby are two bridges over a beautiful creek that connect you to an amphitheater where the city plans to host family friendly events. There are multiple convenient bathroom options here as well. The Great Lawn features plenty of green space, where you can plan to spend many summer nights listening to music and watching the sunset. You’ll even find a small splash pad with color changing lights that will be the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer day.
Parking is plentiful, with street parking on all sides of the Plaza, as well as a parking lot across the street from the playground entrance. Grand Junction Plaza truly is a one stop shop for community events, family fun, and to release some energy at the unique playground. If you are looking for a family outing, a new adventure, or simply a playdate location, you will want to check out the Grand Junction Plaza in Westfield.
