A new public playground will open in the Jackson Square area of Boston this week, officials announced.

A grand opening of the Lorber Family Jackson Square Playground was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

The recreational space located along Columbus Avenue between Columbus Avenue between Heath Street and Centre Street features handicap-accessible zip lines, a merry-go-round, swing sets, a four square court and a 50-foot long, 5-foot wide, 10-foot tall play area named "Wall-holla," officials said.

The playground was designed by the state’s Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Boston Children's Hospital Urban Renewal Committee and Injury Prevention Programs.

Officials from the department and hospital are expected to attend the opening ceremonies.
