Our Special Harbor Spray Ground!

It took the entire summer, but we finally made it to this wonderful spray park over the weekend. The kids had a fantastic time!  And we had a fantastic time watching them!

I can't say enough good things about the park - it's got all the typical array of fountains, dumping buckets, various spraying elements - however, what made it great for us was that all the elements were gentle enough for my kids (ages 3.5 and almost-2) to enjoy without feeling scared. The spray park was also bigger than the ones we had been to - lots of space to run around!

The bottom line: Lots of fun, the kids loved it, can't believe it's free, will be back a lot in 2014.

But that wasn't everything!

Adjacent to the spray park was this equally wonderful woodland-themed play structure. We stopped only for a little bit because, by then, the kids had been in the sun for too long. So instead, we sat in the shade, munched on apples, and watched the other kids play. The entire structure was well designed with lots of nooks and crannies to discover.

After the apples, we walked through the last of the "attractions" - the tree house.

Overall, I was so impressed with everything. I can imagine our family easily spending half a day here next summer. So much to do and you know I love it even more because it was all for a grand total of $0.00.

On the way back home, Will kept on chanting "Fun! Fun! Fun!" Always good to hear for the parents. :)

  4. For once, our tax dollars were finally put to good use. Other than libraries, this is one thing I don't mind seeing our money put towards. Too bad it took us this long to get around to visiting the place. Now we know where we'll be spending our time next summer!
