Marshview Meadows Park Description
We have been visiting Marsh View Meadows Playground for years. In the past mosquitos were pretty bad at the playground. We had no issues today. However, we used to visit in the evening, but our visit today was in the middle of the afternoon.
The smaller structure is a great option for a toddler or preschooler. It has several ways up, low slides, and tubes to crawl through – or slide down. Of course, my daughter always wanted to be where the action was. She always wanted to be on the larger structure.
My daughter enjoyed the balance steps on the larger structure. Today, at 11.5 she flew across them. However, I remember her wanting to cross them as a toddler and having to help her since her legs were too short to reach the next step. She would balance on the support bar. At least the one side is open for easy parental assistance.
If you use the walking trails, be sure to check your children carefully for ticks – they are bad this summer.
The Pavilion is a great place for a group gathering. My daughter’s preschool rented it every year for a Back to School Picnic. The pavilion and structure were perfect for families and nearby bathrooms are a plus for preschoolers. The only downside is the parking lot is a bit small for a large gathering of 50+ families.
Train tracks run to the east of the parks. Sometimes you’ll get to see a train go past.
