Overall Assessment: This is a great playground to challenge school aged kids. Overall it was a little difficult for Gordie, but he still enjoyed finding ways to scramble up the climber and slide back down. The web climber is impressively big – my husband (seen in the last picture below) is 6’4’!

  1. It’s a park near our house, my 4yo likes the wavy walk thing a lot and the wobbly bridge too. The climbing wall was too hard for him last summer (he just had turned 4).
