Sondek Park is a great park for both older and younger children. This park has 2 separate play equipment areas. One area is for smaller children and the other for older children. The areas are separated by the road that travels threw the park. It is not a busy road, the only traffic is for the park. There is not a lot of shading at this park.
Sondek Park is located on 493 New Road, South Brunswick NJ ( Link to Google Map).
How many stars would you give this park on a scale of 1-5? 3-4
Description: The older children play area has a play equipment that has several slides, 2 tunnels, various things to climb on, and 2 spin and match games. This side also has 4 regular swings and 2 infant swings. There is a large shading tree this area and a picnic bench. This park also backs up to a baseball field and a soccer field on the other side. During the spring and summer weekends this park can be busy with excitement from the games!
The toddler park has 1 double slide and one smaller slide. It also has 2 baby swings and monkey bars. The bathrooms and gazebo are located on this side of the park. There is also a baseball field and soccer field that run along the back of this playing area.
Sondek Park also has a great walking trail located at the very back of the park as well as a brush drop off for local residents. Overall this is a great park to take children to. Children can either play on the equipment, run around the fields, play soccer or baseball, ride bikes on the quiet street, or walk the trail. Bring a lunch and enjoy the beautiful weather. Sondek is always a clean park, the township takes very good care of it!
