Leslie Park Playground Review

Leslie Park offers two playgrounds. Both playgrounds have small structures and are best for young children. The front playground is near the baseball diamonds and tennis courts. The back playground is near the soccer field. They are a perfect distraction while their siblings are at a sporting event.

Back Playground

The back playground is close to the soccer field. It features a small structure, see-saw, seat spinners, swings, and a cute monster. I was trying to decide if it was a dinosaur, dragon, or a Loch Ness Monster. What do you think?

Front Playground

In addition to a small structure, the front playground has balance elements, a rocker, and swings. It is close to the baseball diamonds and tennis courts.

The front playground had a number of thistles mixed with the mulch. I was wearing flip flops on our visit and had to watch my step. I suggest wearing sneakers instead of sandals or flip-flops to this park.
