BUT -- in our little Friesen Family of 4, it is called the "Sprinkler Park".
I have to say I thoroughly enjoy this park this year because BOTH of our kiddos get in the water without complaining. I get to soak in some Vitamin D while watching them! If I get hot, I can simply put my legs and feet in some water.
Honestly, this is one of my favorite parks! (And -- we've been back a couple of times already since this visit, and I'm just *guessing* we'll be back multiple more times this summer).
As a side note -- if you haven't been to this park, it does indeed have some playground equipment. I never let my kiddos play on it because we're there for the water. And, the equipment is not "Kate-Friendly" in my opinion. (Better for elementary kids)...
Also, there is a small, covered picnic area, which we have personally never used...
AND -- on this day, Marc showed up IN swimming trunks after work. Luke was THRILLED because Marc will play cool games like "dump water on one's head," etc....
The "Good" about this park:
***Sprinklers are well-maintained, in our opinion
***Covered picnic area, if needed
***Playground equipment for older kids
***Small walking/bike path around nearby pond
The "Not-So-Good" about this park:
***Not too much off-street parking
***Not enough benches for towels, etc at sprinkler area, in our opinion (I personally solve this problem by bringing a lawn chair for myself)...
