Update: Pokestops at Grover Cleveland Park! Enjoy the park and catch some pokemon!
2016 pics of our Pokemon Go adventure are below! Magmar were spotted at this pokestop. Â Great mixed age playground, where the little ones can play in the fenced area, and the older ones can walk around!
Ingress Map: (We did ingress for a short while prior to Pokemon Go, it is what pokemon go is based on and the maps are a perfect resource for finding pokestops) Here’s a screenshot of the area around Grover Cleveland Park.
The playground area is fully fenced with a cushiony solid rubber surfacing â€“ no mulch!Â There is a beautiful building just outside the fencing that houses bathrooms and kid size picnic tables.Â Thereâ€™s also a port-a-john for days when that building is closed.Â The playground has two large new structures with a gazillion climbing options and really fun slides and bridges and all sorts of things to explore.Â There are a ton of swings including two fun tire swings.Â Lots of benches provide places for adults to rest and relax. The setting is amazing, a beautiful brook meanders past the playground (outside the fencing!) and the whole park is beautifully landscaped. It was immaculate when we visited and everything was in bloom.Â A great place to play!
