This playground, set off the road and past all the mini soccer fields, has two climbers that both boys enjoyed. It’s not a huge park, but the big and toddler climbers are interesting, and we saw a fuzzy bear caterpillar that entertained them for 20 minutes.
The big kid climber by Miracle Recreation has an interesting web climber that even the almost 3-year old could scale, safe stairs up to the 855° Typhoon twirly slide, the really neat Bould Ridge Rock climbing wall with holes to climb through, a moveable honeycomb wall, monkey bars, stepping stones, and a stand/sit spinner. Not all doable for the little one but he was able to putter about and try things out. There are also big and baby swings, and everything in both the big and toddler sections are set on sand.
Just between the two playground sections (they are very close together) are a few picnic tables, which is a great vantage spot for watching kids in both areas.
The toddler climber is by Kompan and has easy to climb platform/stairs, a mini-mini rock wall, a little slide, and lots of textury walls. I just made up that word.
There’s also a little Kompan spring rider, and some stool/stepping stones that look as if they’ve been placed in a garden.
The other gardens all around the play areas had recently been landscaped and it was all very tidy and pretty relaxing.
The boys “saved” a caterpillar from roasting in the hot sun, and spent a while coddling him under his new home under a tree. He curled up in a small ball, which may be because he was petrified of toddlers. I don’t blame him.
This was our second time coming out to this park, as last time there were soccer games going on and the playground was covered in soccer siblings. I’d imagine it’s pretty busy on weekday evenings in the summer. There is no fencing, though it’s bordered by the neighbouring houses’ backyards and their fences, and there isn’t very much shade.
