Washington Park Playground

Let your runner zoom all over the ramps and bridges at this super cool playground, officially known as the Rose Garden Children’s Park. This park has slides for everyone, including curly slides, toddler slides and tunnel slides. There are swings for tots and bigger kids, tons of climbing options and a sandbox big enough for Junior’s favorite dump truck.
