Bromley Park Description

Bromley Park is a neighborhood park in the Thurston area. In addition to the structure, the playground includes natural elements with log stools and large logs. The kids can hop from log to log and climb over the larger logs.

In addition, there is also a log tunnel for the kids to crawl under or climb over.

On my visit (mid-August 2021), it looked like the sandbox had been recently refreshed. The sand was clear of weeds and debris, and was in nice fluffy piles.

The structure features a flexible bridge, a tic-tac-toe spinner, a twisty slide, and two lower racer slides.

In addition, the park also has a bouncer and a spinner. Kids can hold on and go for a spin.

When it is time to take a break from playing, head to the grove of trees where there is a Little Free Library to find a good book to read and settle in on a log.
