There’s a new place to play in Cobb County.

An aviation-themed park opened near the Cobb County International Airport-McCollum Field (of course) on Friday. The county approved the park in February.

According to organizers, the three-acre Aviation Park cost $2.7 million and was funded by the Town Center Community Improvement District and the Town Center Community Alliance.

But how aircraft-inspired are we talking?

Well, there’s an airplane-shaped climbing rope web, control tower-themed bathrooms and the picnic pavilion is designed to look like a wing.

And the whole thing is located near the end of the airport’s runway, which is why there’s an open area designed to specifically watch planes in flight.

To find it, you’ll want to search this address: 2659 Barrett Lakes Blvd., Kennesaw.
