Play at Mason Wallace Park
Babies all the way up to big kids can get their wiggles out at Mason Wallace Park playground just off Monroe Road. The mulch-covered playground has two connecting play sets. Preschoolers and bigger kids can climb an arched monkey bar ladder, a chain ladder or standard ladder onto the play set deck. Toddlers can practice their walking and balancing skills climbing the steps to the smaller slide deck that has a baby slide, or venture across the swinging bridge to the bigger slide deck where there are three slides: one twisty and two side-by-side straight slides. Nearby is a swing set with two baby swings and two big-kid swings. If you have kids older than 8, bring a soccer or football for kicking around in the adjacent playing field.
