Community: 101 Carousel Drive – Missoula, Montana
Gordie’s Review (3 years old) “I liked the slide. The big one.”
Age Range: 18 months – 12 years.
Ground Cover: wood chips
Shade: Shade provided by large mature trees, the play structure itself and a gazebo area.
Features: Huge wooden play structure with a dragon theme and slides; Smaller Tot area with toddler sized climbers and musical features.
Surrounding Park Area: Right next to A Carousel for Missoula.
Accessibility: It would be difficult for a wheelchair to navigate but it would work well for someone with reduced mobility
Seating: plenty of places to sit.
Overall assessment: This is one of my favorite playgrounds ever of all time. The design is very different from typical playgrounds. In many ways it is more like a indoor playground with lots of steps, places to explore, twists and turns and big slides to go down. The visibility inside is poor but it’s great for playing with your kids. We were able to go through most of the playground comfortably with our baby in a carrier. The entire play area is also fenced so there arel imited exit points. There is a fantastic toddler area as well for kids who like to be independent but aren’t ready to navigate the big climber by themselves yet. If you are in the area I highly recommend stopping by.
