Taywood Park

We were driving endlessly around the same few blocks, looking at Google Maps and trying to find what it SAID was a park at Allancroft (there was none), and just happened upon the park on Taywood (which Google Maps didn’t show). Argh!

Anyhoo…This park was a pleasant surprise.
It’s quiet and on a cul-de-sac, so there’s not much traffic, which is good since there is no fencing and the swings are quite near the road.

The toddler climber (an older model from Landscape Structures) is easily accessible for short legs with wide staircase/platforms, a tunnel, tunnel slide, Cozy Climber arched ladder, steering wheel, and a ground-level marble maze panel. Only problem is it is filthy. I don’t know how the handrail could possibly have gotten so grungy unless maybe it’s spray paint? Unfortunate because other than that I liked it, and so did the little guy.

In the same area are a couple of spring riders, an old-school metal climber, and a sand digger. And a sand box, which is redundant as the whole playground is on sand….

Just beside is the fairly new and quite impressive climber from Jambette with a myriad of ways to get up. And best of all, stairs!
There are also some toadstools, metal rungs, a rope bridge that I bravely crossed (!), a “normal” bridge to access the high slide, tic-tac-toe wall at ground level and a plastic rock-climbing wall.
The little one had a good time here despite it being for the bigger kids.

Great thing here: the reduced mobility swing in addition to the baby and big swings. Except it’s in sand.
