side note: We love posting the originals from our collaborators, (an instagram embed) but sometimes we aren’t able to embed their original post due to Instagram tech issues (haven’t figured out why it is so fickle)- When we can, we will post remixes or a copied version if the original is unable to be posted.

Yahn’s Pond Playground in North Haledon, NJ is such a cute small playground. What we loved right away is that it’s a fully fenced in play space.
The kids immediately ran over to little treehouse which is so inviting.
I learned that this renovated play space was dedicated in 2019 to a local 4 year old boy, Owen Kleiwerda, who was tragically killed by a tree in his backyard.
We felt so honored to play here.
It offered cute climbing, a fun little slide, and crawling tube.
The second structure is a nice tall structure with different slide options and ways to climb up there. Another fun feature is the zip line, wheelchair accessible swing and climbing web. After we played for a while, we ate our snack outside the fence at a picnic bench while watching the geese and duck land in the pond. There are also different benches along the pond too. We took a moment to explore the side of the pond which was my son’s favorite. He loved seeing the little brook in the back. Wheelchair accessible port a potty located next to the playground.
