After a facebook fan commented that this was her favorite park, that isn’t too far from my house, I was delighted to take my 3yo there.Â Lions Park is a shady park with equipment for both pre-school and school-age children. It has some great equipment to climb on picnic tables and benches and 2 sets of swings. Parking on the street. It was quiet here, but met some really nice moms, hi Genie, and Carolina, thanks for showing us the way to the creek! Wood chips.
And in the spirit of Instagram, ta da! playground with filters!

A nice little “hidden” playground in a residential neighborhood. Rarely crowded. So glad I found this. Plenty of shade so it’s perfect for a hot day!
