The brand new McNair Playground features a physics and space science theme in commemoration of Dr. McNair. The playground incorporates planetary elements and objects emblematic of astrophysics. The decorative spray shower features moonlike craters at its dome, the phases of the moon are also illustrated in the custom-made climber. The playground contains two sundials- one can be used to tell the time (analemnatic Sundial) and one that stands as a stationary globe with the sun shining on it as it does across the earth (Earth Sundial). The playground also features new benches, drinking fountains and trash receptacles. Trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcover surround these active features.
