Fritz Park Description
Fritz Park Playground is best suited for younger kids. It has a low structure and baby swings with no regular swings.
Kids will love tackling the mini-rock wall. It’s the perfect size for preschoolers to climb over.
For older kids, Fritz Park has one stand alone slide and a tire swing. It reminds me of the standalone slides I grew up with – but at least it isn’t a hot metal slide.
Beyond the playground, the trails will lead to the larger Eberwhite Nature Area
Beyond Fritz Park
Fritz Park connects Pauline Blvd to the Eberwhite Nature Area. Stop at Fritz Park, then wander through the nature area, and maybe add a stop at the Eberwhite Elementary School Playground. Or walk down Pauline Blvd to Allmendinger Park.
