Chi-Bro Park Description

Chi-Bro Park’s structures have a public safety theme. The large structure is a giant fire-truck complete with a tube to crawl from one end to the other.

Chi-Bro Park Fire Truck Structure

The fire truck has wheels for “steering” both the front and back of the fire truck, monkey bars built in to connect the sections, and a fire pole. The rear of the truck has 3 slides – a twisty slide and a pair of racer slides

The smaller structure is themed as a police/patrol car. This structure does not have any slides, but has a platform, a seat to “drive”, letter spinners, and more.

Even the see-saw is in on the theming with dalmatians in fire hats on it.
