The Raymond G. Doss Playground of Miracles is a playground designed to allow physically-challenged children to play on specially designed equipment. It is located adjacent to the Miracle League Baseball field at Luman Harris Park in Gardendale.

The playground is named in honor of Raymond Doss, the longtime Miracle League supporter who did the grading work for the ball field with his famous orange tractor. A likeness of that tractor, which Doss also used to grade the fields at the Clemons Recreational Complex, among several other community projects -- is included in the playground equipment.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the future site of the playground on September 17, 2015 and it was officially dedicated on August 18, 2016.
