Sugarbush Park East Description
Sugarbush Park has two play areas that are in different sections of the park. They are on opposite sides of Yellowstone Dr. Because they are separated by such a distance, we are covering them as two separate playground profiles rather than one profile with two structures.
The east side of Sugarbush Park has a large play structure. This side of the park is better for older kids with a taller structure. It has 3 slides each with a slight curve.
In addition, the structure has monkey bars and a zip line. Instead of traditional bars, the rungs hang from a chain link.
The playground also has a tire swing, which I was not able to get a picture of as it was in use.
Beyond Sugarbush Park East
Don’t forget to check out the other playground on the west side of Sugarbush Park. That side of the park also features several sports fields and unpaved paths through the trees.
