Our first stop was #45 Shier-Rings Park. This is another--boring!--park without a playground. But we had to check it off. I didn't even get the twins out of the trailer:
This little park did have some nice bridges over water, which might prove relaxing if you didn't have three kids with you:
We continued south along Emerald Parkway. We came across this interesting stretch of bike path where nature was fighting back:
This path is only 6 or 7 years old, so maybe they just laid the asphalt down too thin. Anyway, we missed #54 Woods of Brighton Park, but came then to #49 Trinity Park. Perhaps Trinity refers to the three play structures:
Or maybe the developer was just a "Matrix" fan. Not much interesting here, but right across the street was #9 Brighton Commons Park. It's accessed by this nice looking bridge:
And has a rather peaceful little orchard:
The play structure is not so interesting:
But that hardly matters, because, what's this?
They have a fair sized wading pool. So wade we did:
And maybe a few more things:
With the kids already soaked, they didn't have to do much to convince me to stop at the #5 Ballantrae Spray Park again on the way home.
I think my Burley trailer stopped being waterproof years ago, but that hardly matters when the water is coming from the inside:
Then it was time to hit the road for home:
Three down, 24 to go.
