City of Aiken Enhances Osbon Park Playground Experience

Aiken, SC – The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department is excited to unveil the newly upgraded playground system at Osbon Park located at 346 Columbia Avenue NW, Aiken, SC 29801. This revitalized play area now features a GameTime play system designed for children ages 5 to 12 years old.

The enhanced playground boasts a range of amenities, including an artificial grass playing surface, a swing set, sensory panels, an overhead climber, crawl tube, and fast slide for additional play value. The rock climber adds a charming theming element, making it an irresistible playground destination for kids!

In addition to the new playground equipment, Osbon Park offers a variety of amenities for visitors to enjoy: a spacious picnic shelter available for rental, picnic tables, water fountain, walking track, and open green space.

“We are thrilled to provide playground enhancements to Osbon Park,” said Jessica Campbell, Director of the City of Aiken Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department. “The new play system along with existing park amenities offers families and visitors of all ages an inviting outdoor space to enjoy recreational activities and quality time together.”
