Play at Rama Road Park
This gem of a neighborhood park, tucked behind Rama Road Elementary School, has lots of room for children to run and play, as well as some unique play equipment. The fire truck made of monkey bars, tires and wooden planks gives children free range to practice using their climbing and balancing skills, as well as their imaginations. The yellow monkey-bar spider is also fun for climbing without fear of being too high off the ground. There are three slides: two connected with a tunnel for tots; the other a steep metal slide best for the older kids. Little ones can also have fun bouncing on the rocking animals and dinosaur near the school building. There are swings and benches for taking a break, as well as a big picnic shelter. It sits under a canopy of trees, which is great for shade, but buggy in the summer months. Parking is available in the school lot.
