Joseph & Mary Vendetti Playground
The playground at Beaver Pond was dedicated to the children of Franklin by Joseph and Mary Vendetti.  This tot lot was designed for ages 2-5 and features 3 spring animals (whale, porpoise, Clifford "the big red dog"), three slides with a rock climbing wall, a suspended bridge, and numerous challenges for kids. The playground is ADA compliant and is furnished with engineered wood fiber surfacing. The entire playground has been donated in memory of Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Vendetti. Special thanks to the Vendetti's for their donation to the children of Franklin. A dedication was held in September of 2005.
