Ypsilanti’s Clubview Park Playground Profile
Ypsilanti’s Clubview Park is a large park with tennis courts, open fields, and a play area. The play area features 2 play structures, one for kids ages 2-5 and one for older kids.
The larger play structure is one of the more unique plastic structures we have encountered. It has a fish decorated climber, a log to climb, and other fun climbing activities. My daughter loved it – and she gets to visit a lot of playgrounds.
The small structure is perfect for younger kids. It has a twist slide and several lower slides. It is the perfect height for younger kids.
In addition to the two main structures, there is a stand-alone section with swinging pole climbers and chain ladders.
Clubview Park also offers a standing see-saw, a tire swing, regular swings, and baby swings. The baby bucket swings are a step up from the plain black ones. They are molded with a higher back to provide more support.
There is plenty of room for other activities with tennis courts, volleyball court, and open fields for playing. There is also a pavilion and areas for seating.
