2. Carter Park: This playground offers options for all ages, and little bits of learning infused throughout! Two big kid, and one baby swing are to the side of the play equipment, and there are slides that are appropriate for toddlers, and bigger side-by-side slides for older kids. Gus (4) loved riding down the slide with new friends! There’s a wall with a clock and moveable hands (love this for introducing telling time/skip counting by 5s) to young children – yes, learning to tell time is still an important skill – make your kids learn it when they’re young, or else they’ll struggle when they get to the “telling time” unit in their world language classes later wink).
