Alice and I are on a mission.
We want to find the best playground in town.
(Well, our general area of town.)
I figured I'd document our quest here.
There are a few things that make a good playground to me.
Does it have good surfacing?
Is the equipment maintained?
Will this playground result in us paying toward our super high insurance deductible?
2. Wind/Sun/Shade situation-
When it's cold, I want a park in the direct sunshine.
In the summer, I want shade.
I also don't enjoy being blown away.
I don't like them.
I also don't like my almost 4 year old learning "colorful" language from other kids at the park.
4. Restroom access-
The problem is, it's typically the bigger (more crowded) parks that have restrooms.
We keep a potty in the van, just in case.
Will it entertain her for awhile?
Are there areas that challenge her gross motor skills?
Are there picnic tables?
Is it stroller friendly?
So, that's it.
That's our Spring/Summer challenge. :)
