The playground equipment at Reid Park includes cool submarine-style passageways, twisting slides, fire poles and sky-reaching swing sets, with the extra bonus of acres of green grass and strolling ducks. And, if your kid falls--and your kid will
fall (that's what kids do)--several layers of soft woodchips and some bouncy outdoor foam floors are there to provide a soft landing. This is a worry-free (and cost-free) fun land for a wide range of age groups: The tikes will find the equipment relatively scalable, while there is plenty to inspire the more advanced simian tendencies of the older kids.
