On a Sunday afternoon with the farmers market next to the playground, this is a busy destination for many. The strollers were parked three deep.
The toddler section is segregated from the older kids' equipment. It's a useful feature when the playground is packed since it helps keep track of your kids. It didn't exactly stop our toddler from racing between the two sections.
The toddler section has a long elevated platform with lots of different ways of getting up and down. They were all pretty simple though and our toddler found a lot more stimulation on the opposite side of the playground.
Overall what I like about this playground is there is plenty of up, down, and platform items to play on. The layout didn't have great sightlines to keep track of your kid, but there were many different layers of gates so it was unlikely a toddler would run off into the street.
Two things that stand out here: the elephant statues are a fun addition, and more playgrounds should have weird animal statues. Second, there was a big tire swing that constantly had children playing on it, and maybe that's a sign there should be more tire swings.
The park is a popular one since it's in the middle of a busy business district – grab a new book at Books Are Magic and head on over. I'm sure we'll be back to this one soon.
