Toucie and I are seasoned park-hoppers. We have about a dozen parks near our home base that we love to visit. Today we spent over 6 hours at Warner Park. This is a huge park (2684 acres) with tons of trails and playgrounds and lovely spots to offer, but I just wanted to share with you this amazing children's play area. No jungle gyms or swings or seesaws...just piles of dirt, heaps of sand, water spigots here and there, stumps, and teepees...it is alot like my dream playground :)
shelves full of cups and bowls for sand/dirt/mud play
I play on these more than she does...I must have been a child in another life...
totally going to build one of these this year
this is the sand pit. there is a spigot in that pile of rocks at the bottom right. awesome.
the ultimate balance beam
I didn't get a photo of the big dirt pile. It is probably about 10 feet tall and it has a slide down one side. I think that dirt hill is what gets the most action and it is about the simplest thing here...just a heap of dirt! Genius.
And here's what I snuck in while Toucie was mucking about...good stuff.
