Two days ago, we made two park visits on our summer park tour series.
SO -- Park Visit #4 was to Quail Creek Park!!!! Quail Creek Park is in the back of the Quail Creek neighborhood in our fair city.
This park is one we have visited MANY times. I would say that this park is probably our family's favorite. This time, however, was our official visit, documented with pics!
Our family has nicknamed this park "The Shock Park" or "The Shocker Park". And, I know we're not the only family with these nicknames. This park, I think, with the combination of the materials with which the equipment is made and *maybe* the artificial grass, generates quite a bit of static electricity. Therefore, kids and adults alike get shocked quite a bit.
First -- Luke's pic....
Next, my pic....
Both kiddos like to swing....
And, the equipment is fairly new. Parts of the equipment are quite high, but both of our kiddos really like it. And, I'm slowly starting to not get *quite* as nervous when Kate is up high. (Notice Kate's hair with the static electricity).
And, I LOVE capturing pics of our kiddos together, as siblings...
AND -- to stay "true to my word," here's the obligatory pic of Kate crying. If I remember correctly, she had to be disciplined for not obeying her Mama. Life is ROUGH when you're almost 3 years old. In this pic, she was sitting, calming down, while waiting for her timer to beep off (the timer indicating when she could get back up to play).
The "Good" about this park:
***Newer, maintained equipment
***Easy access for our family
***Sheltered picnic area
***Area to play soccer, football, etc with friends
***Plenty of picnic tables
The "Not So Good" about this park:
***Virtually no mature trees; very little shade
***Pond formed in field as a result of recent rains (no ball playing on this day)
