When my daughter’s softball schedule this year included Frisinger Park, I had no idea where it was. It turns out I have driven past it many times without realizing it was there.

Frisinger Park Playground Review
I never really noticed Frisinger park despite driving down Stadium Blvd many times over the years. While Frisinger Park’s address is Stadium Blvd, the playground and softball field are set towards the back of the park. Woodbury runs on the east side of the park and offers street parking.
My daughter loved the standing design of the seesaw at Frisinger Park. As an only child, she even found a way to make it work solo.
The playground structure itself is somewhat unique. Instead of the a typical roof, it has a series of concentric circles leaving the top of the structure open. It also offers several ways to climb to the structure and a climbing wall.
Frisinger Park is conveniently located next to Lucky’s Market if you want to purchase a snack or a lunch to picnic at the park.
