The park will be located at the Collegedale Commons on Swinyar Drive.

We’ve got a sweet update for y’all.

The Little Debbie Park located at Collegedale Commons is set to open this fall. The sweet treat-themed park sits on a 10-acre parcel of land that was purchased + donated in 2021 by the McKee Family of McKee Foods Corporation (the manufacturer of the brand Little Debbie).

The park is intended to create a “relaxed and natural area focusing on people rather than things,” according to the park’s website.

Construction of the park is well underway — here are some of the amenities you can expect come fall.

The park will feature several Little Debbie snack-shaped play sculptures such as:

  • An Oatmeal Creme Pie + Nutty Bar (kid and adult-friendly) seating sculptures
  • A Cosmic Brownie climbing wall
  • A 6-ft tall Polyshield Christmas Tree (pictured above)
  • A Chocolate Cupcake sculpture

Bonus: a life-sized bronze statue of Little Debbie herself may be in the works.

Along with the Little Debbie snack-themed sculptures, the space will have several other amenities for parkgoers to enjoy. Some of the highlights include:

  • Swings, benches, picnic tables + bike racks
  • 83 standard parking spaces + four ADA-compatible parking spaces
  • Playgrounds (with all kinds of structures for the kiddos to enjoy)
  • Green space with enough trees + plants to qualify for arboretum status
