We have our first guests on our journey. We met up with our friends, the Gillespies, for a play date. She suggested this park, which was already on our list to visit. This is another one that was just updated this year. Some of the work on the grounds was still in process as well.
Sky wheels have been a favorite of Parker's for a while. This one has a nice high ladder for him to stand on to spin it.
Russell loved playing with Esme and they were following each other around the whole time.
The structure to the lower right was curious to me, so I looked it up on Gametime's website. It's called a Sensory Cove Climber. This is the first time I have seen something specifically for intellectual disabilities at a smaller city park. It's a place for someone to rest and reset or observe others playing from a distance. It can also be used as a climbing structure.
There were a couple older boys there and Parker was drawn to their skateboards. We were trying to keep him away, but the boys didn't mind him playing with it.
It's been far too long since we've met up with Cindy, so it was nice to catch up.
This park gets 4 swings. I liked the updated structure and the inclusion of sensory spaces. This is also the first time I have seen the parent and child swing with a bucket seat for the child. I really liked these when Esme was a baby, but it's great to have an option for bigger kids not able to swing independently. We would definitely return!
