NOTE: we revisited the park during the summer of 2016 to see renovations including the addition of picnic and chess tables, and two ping pong tables. Photo gallery updated!
This park wins for “best smelling”.
There must be a really aromatic tree somewhere because it smelled so fresh and autumn-like here. “Autumn-like” means yummy, pumpkins, big sweaters, and apple pie!
This park is on a quiet street (thankfully, as there is no fencing). It IS quite close to the road so watch those little runners!
There is an ok big-kid climber from Landscape Structures. My big kid was a bit “Meh” over it and only did the chain bridge and slide and then explored the rest of the playground. There’s no staircase on this climber, but rather three different kinds of metal ladders. We all actually enjoyed the toddler climber more; I guess both my boys love steering wheels! The smaller climber has stairs, a Double Wavy slide, a single slide, plus the required-for-us steering wheel.
There is also a little section with equipment from GameTime including Flower Talk Tubes, the CUTEST concrete mushroom, then you can walk across the “rocks” and scale down the big fat leaf vine climbers. Original.
The park also has the amazingly creative dragonfly seesaw which we’d previously seen and enjoyed at Roxboro and Greendale Parks.
There are also big and baby swings and a small forest with paths (not stroller friendly).
The play equipment is around a central courtyard area of benches and there are trees surrounding most of the park, though there was full sun on both of the climbers when we visited around noon.
We parked in the lot on Aragon, just north of the tennis courts, but if you don’t want to carry a toddler, the play area is much closer to Rue Sunbury.
