Huron Highlands Park Description

Huron Highlands Park has two structures. The smaller structure is a traditional structure with 3 slides – and sized for smaller kids. It also has tic tac toe spinners on the structure.

Huron Highlands Playground - Slide Structure

The larger structure is more unique and less traditional. It has a zip line, monkey bars, and rings radiating like spokes from a center hub that has built in benches. There is no true structure to climb.

Attached to the end of the rings spoke is a log roller. Can you stay on? When my daughter was little, she always wanted me to try. I was better than she was, but still not very good.

The sandbox at Huron Highlands has a digger built into it.

Huron Highlands Playground Overview

As a preschooler, my daughter loved climbing on the playground dinosaurs. I wonder what type of dinosaur this is at Huron Highlands? Maybe a brachiosaurus.
