I decided to visit this great park after my recent NJ celebrity poll on favorite playgrounds got a response from Jacqueline Laurita of the Real Housewives of NJ. She says:
“The Wyckoff one is big and fun for kids but if you don’t like sandboxes don’t go there because that’s where your kid will end up.”
Ok, she was soooo not kidding, I have to say out of all the playgrounds I have visited, Wyckoff Community Playground has the most number of sand toys, that it’s almost impossible for your kid not to get his or her hands on a dump truck. Our kids had lots of fun including the big sprawling playground structure with some really fast slides and climbing structures. Ice Cream truck stops here, and there are plenty of benches and swings. Bathroom is a the port-a-potty by the field.
Thanks Jacqueline for your response, for a peek into what’s going on with this “Real Housewife of NJ” check out her twitter feed! More pictures below.
