Lillie Park Description

Over the years we have frequented the Lillie Park playground. We keep returning despite the full-sun nature of the park. It happens to be conveniently located between our house and friends houses which made it a convenient park to meet at.

When my daughter was younger I appreciated the small playing structure that is designed for ages 2-5. It really is perfect for a toddler! Parents can reach the entire structure, it offers a side-by-side slide, climb through lion, spinning animal matching, and more.

The main structure offers something for lots of different ages. There are 4 slides on the main structure, a tube slide, a side-by-side straight slides, and two open twisting slide. At some parks, my 10 year old can reach the monkey bars from the ground. So she definitely appreciates the monkey bars at Lillie Park that are well above her head.

We have brought a picnic dinner to Lillie Park and eaten in one of the Pavilions when it has not been in use.
