Plymouth Parkway Park Review

Plymouth Parkway Park is a nice small park. With trees to provide shade and a creek for wading, it is a great choice to cool off on a warm summer day. My daughter tried wading in the creek. But even though it was 80 today, we have not had enough warm days yet this spring to warm the water.

On the play structure, my daughter really enjoyed the chain ladder. Of course being 12 she used it to climb onto the structure. The structure is great for young kids with a low double slide and then a taller slide for older kids. Young kids will also enjoy the “stage” window and putting on a puppet show.

It is a great park for a picnic. Cottage Inn and Broadway Cafe are in a strip mall next to the park. There are also picnic benches available.

However, with limited parking availability, it is best for those who live in walking distance.
