Our city was recently recognized for the newly renovated and inclusive Becker Park at Best Parks Twin Cities on Facebook:

Becker Park in Crystal, is a super cool, newly rebuilt from the ground up park! It’s huge with innovative playground equipment for all abilities including wheelchairs. Also don’t forget to bring your swimsuits because there is a splash pad perfect for keeping the tots nice and cool.
