Athan Downs was developed to put kids of all abilities together to have fun and make memories. The Sway Fun® glider, OmniSpin® spinner, Roller Table, and other open and sensory-rich games can all be found on the playground. Additionally, due to the extensive ramping scheme, children with mobility devices would be able to navigate the playground's action.
Climbing systems are ideal for people of all ages. It never gets boring, and it offers the kids plenty of chances for open-ended games and play. Running and playing ball on the wide green field immediately behind the play structure is also a great choice.
Following the improvement of the play area, this park now earns five stars and is one of the best toddler playgrounds in the area. They removed the sand and now have only one small sand pit for children (yeah for me). The rubber mat with lots of cushion now covers the entire area under the play framework. The play structure is also very large, with many ramps for early walkers, plenty of shade, slides, swings, and a wide range of built-in activities.
It's a beautiful park to stroll around or carry your dog to. A playground for children, picnic tables, basketball courts, a baseball/soccer track, and tennis courts are all available.
During the soccer/baseball season, this park gets very busy as a result of the large number of parents who attend. During the summer, you might be able to catch the Mr. Softee ice cream truck if you're lucky!
The park is still kept tidy. Occasionally, a taco truck with bomb tacos will park in the parking lot. When children walk on those photos on the rubber pad, sounds are played through speakers. There are also tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, a wide number of picnic tables, and plenty of green space at this park.
The picnic tables, which can be reserved for parties, are shaded by large trees. These trees can come in handy during our hot summers.
The sand area is a little small, but the play structures for children aged 2 to 5 are fantastic. There are numerous gentle slopes and small slides. The roller horizontal slide, which can easily pinch fingers, should be avoided before children are a little older. It has a sticker on it that says it's for older children, but it's difficult to read. Music was playing in the background. It can get very hot in the sun, so come earlier in the day to take advantage of the play structures. There are plenty of open spaces for running and plenty of parking. This park is unquestionably a winner.
The best play structure for toddlers and young children to explore in the city. If you're visiting for the first time, keep in mind that the boat at one end of the structure moves. It may not be obvious, but the boat can sway with a little movement. The entire play area is on a foam pad, which is great because the wood chips found at many other parks can cause splinters.
