If you’ve been waiting for the Method Road playground to be finished, now is the time to check it out! The playground underwent renovations during the Fall and the work was finally completed last week.
Method Road Park is located at 514 Method Rd. The playground area is completely fenced in with equipment grouped according to the age levels: 2-5 year olds and 5-12 year olds.
Toddlers will enjoy the tot swings, mini climbing areas, and music making equipment while the older kids will enjoy the slides, jungle gyms, and racing up the ramps. Each play area also has some fun educational items about shapes and animals. The spongy surface is also great exercise for the little crawlers who aren’t quite ready to play on the toddler equipment yet.
Parents will appreciate the benches and picnic tables inside the playground area, making it easy to keep an eye on the little ones. The fence around the perimeter of the playground will also put parents at ease given that the playground is so close to Method Road.
Other than the playground, Method Road Park has a community center and many other features to offer.
Thumbs up: fenced-in play area, equipment grouped by age group, tot climbing area, variety of slides and ramps in older kid area
