It looks like we might be able to squeeze in a few more days of sunny, above normal temperatures before winter hits, so can I recommend to you a fun park in Simsbury?
Similar to my previous post on Jonathan’s Dream playground in West Hartford, Rotary Park Boundless Playground in Simsbury is a boundless playground suitable for children of all ability levels.
It was easy to find as it is located right off of Iron Horse Boulevard. Parking wasn’t an issue either. There were plenty of spaces.
When we visited, Bruiser and Sparkles were ten months old and not walking. So I am always just looking for baby swings, some slides, and a place they can crawl around without finding too much stuff to put in their mouths. I successfully found all three things at this park.
There was also a posting about the park rules. It says the main playscape is designed for kids aged 5 – 12. here is also a second playscape designed for kids aged 2-5. But I will say that I found fun things for my 10 month old and our 18 month old friend who was with us had a ball as well.
Overall, this was a fun park to take the kids. There is a nice walking path that goes right past the park. Also, just up the hill is a cute shopping center which contains a Starbucks (in case you need some fuel before or after your trip). I definitely recommend checking this one out.
