GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Playgrounds have evolved over time. 

Schaper Park in Golden Valley is a great example of how they’ve changed. 

Inspired by American Ninja Warrior and the NFL Scouting Combine, kids at the park can run through an obstacle course with digital timers, so they can track their progress. 

Perk’s run through the course could use some polish, but his 40 yard dash was a thing of beauty.
