Saline’s Brecon Park Profile
Saline’s Brecon Park includes both a play structure and standalone play equipment. Standalone equipment includes two slides, a merry-go-round, and a climber.
The play structure at Brecon Park features 3 slides. It is not a super tall structure, but does have more difficult climbing elements than many playgrounds.
On one side is the twisty ladder. My daughter quickly figured it out, but it will be challenging for younger kids.
To get to the higher slides is the floating hoop tunnel. There is also a floating hoop ladder. At 5’5, these are a bit challenging for my teen. I don’t recommend them for toddlers or young preschoolers.
Merry-go-rounds were much more common when I was younger. There are only a few playgrounds around town with them. My daughter always loves spinning around on them.
Brecon Park also has two stand alone slides, swings, and a jungle gym.
Brecon Park is less than a 10 minute walk from the Saline District Library. If you’re headed to the library, plan to walk over and enjoy the park.
