The Playful Dragon Playground in Orion Township is the newest and coolest addition to the area and we had a blast climbing on the giant dragon and walking the storybook path.

Orion Township was “selected as a 2019 #PlayEverywhere challenge grantee” to open two new pocket parks along the Baldwin corridor and the Playful Dragon is the first to open. The giant green dragon has a long red tongue that kids can slide down and wings that are perfect for climbing all over. In addition to the dragon you can also walk the short storybook path which includes an adorable story written and illustrated by Lake Orion High School students. 

Playground Details:

  • Partially fenced-in but is located right on Baldwin Rd. which is a multi-lane, busy street!
  • Limited street parking is available on Jordan Rd. (no parking lot)
  • Two picnic tables & trash bins 
  • Short ADA accessible walking path with a storybook trail
  • No on-site bathrooms! (multiple fast food restaurants are within walking distance)
  • On hot, sunny days bring sunscreen + water as there’s no shaded areas
