In 1937, the Smyrna Rest Area was little more than a picnic table and a wide spot in the road. It was one of many such spots opened by the Delaware Highway Commission. Since then, the rest area has grown not only in size, but more importantly, in it’s place in Delaware culture. Today, the facility has two to three million visitors a year, and even hosts weddings and countless picnics. Liberty Parks & Playgrounds, Inc. was selected by DelDOT to design and install a new Miracle playground at the Smyrna Rest Area. Just off DE Rt 1, this playground includes a wheelchair accessible structure and swings for ages 2-12. Poured in place surfacing contributes to the safety and attractiveness of this space.
