The exciting and unique Safety Town is located next to Prairieland Elementary School in Carden Park behind Fire Station #3 along Raab Road west of Towanda Avenue.
Safety Town is designed for children to ride bikes in a safe traffic area complete with miniature signs, small scale roads and its own play equipment. The adjacent miniature fire truck is popular for kids of all ages.
The facility is available to the public during regular park hours.
