3501 N. Kilbourn Ave.
The addition of expanded native-plant gardens are among the best,
latest developments evolving the look and feel of the city's
playgrounds. Among them, Kilbourn is the first in a large American
metro area to have a public fruit-tree orchard (24 apple, pear,
cherry, plum and paw-paw trees). It's also among the first to have
a "teaching" greenhouse where adults and kids can learn year-round
about gardening. The playground itself is cheery and well
maintained. There's a fieldhouse, outdoor basketball and tennis
courts, a gym, baseball field and new soccer field funded through
Nike's Reuse-a-Shoe program.
