The Bloomingdale Community Playground at Bogue Pond is a wonderful playground just minutes away from the center of Bloomingdale. Freshly mulched every Spring and very clean with newer equipment. Open field to play sports and a small pond right next to the playground. 2 big wooden tree houses with slides and lots of climbing features. The smaller tree house is shaded for most of the day, the bigger tree house is more in the sun. Overall, it’s quite sunny, and the equipment (swings, see-saw etc) can get very hot on high temperature days. Otto’s Deli right across the street offers a big selection of snacks, treats and drinks. The porta-potty is on the “smelly” side, but I think that is not unusual for these kind of bathroom solutions. The pond always offers wildlife to watch, soon there will be little cygnets swimming around. It’s our favorite park in the Bloomingdale area, it provides hours of fun and exercise for little kids with a never ending energy supply.
