  • This is so exciting!! My son’s favorite playground is the one at Spencer Borden school in Fall River, Ma. He loves that he can play soccer on the grass, ride his bike on the pavement and climb all over the jungle jim!!


  • My children’s favorite park is the one we’re in right now and we try to visit as many of them as possible. A new view is always a good thing and it makes return visits to old favorites that much cozier and inviting! I sure have gotten some great ideas for new parks to visit from reading everyone’s comments! Can’t wait to try them all out…

  • I like different playgrounds for different reasons on different days.

    In our weekly circuit is
    Brown Street
    Summit Park
    India Point

    All in Providence.

  • My son loves the playground in Warren on Asylum Rd. next to the Hugh Cole Elementary school. It’s a very cool playground.

  • Patterson park because of the woods, the basketball hoops, the big field for games. And of course the playground!

  • Any park’ll do, but the bike riding/playground combination provided by Lippitt Park is always a hit. He also especially loves the “boat park” on the Cranston side of Pawtuxet Village.

  • I like Patterson Park the best because it has a variety of things to do — play equipment, low basketball hoop, sandbox, field, picnic table and lots of beautiful trees to look at or sit under. I also think it’s great that the kids love to build structures out of fallen tree limbs in the woods next to it. It’s our mini version of an adventure playground.

  • my kids LOVE the play ground at warwick City Park. They love that they can play on the playground and run to the beach in 2 secs!

  • My kids love Humboldt Park as do we, bc of the fence the kids can run and hide and parents don’t need to be hyperventilating everytime the little ones are just out of sight.

  • My daughter has been enjoying Lippitt park for years. As she gets older, it is a quest to the park that she enjoys: the newly earned freedom to ride a bike with friends down the boulevard. And she may even enjoy the rewards of a lemonade, or even an ice cream cone at three sisters, after all the fun things to do there.

  • My son has always loved the Impossible Dream Playground in Warwick! And we love the idea that it was created for all children but that special needs children were taken into consideration so they can enjoy this playground as well!

  • My kids love the playground at the PeaceDale Green. There’s a stream to check out as well as a huge willow tree to climb under. I love its proximity to the Neighborhood Guild as well as one of the SK libraries, which is a great spot to pop into when it’s really hot or really cold, to replenish our library book stack, or to pick up a book I have on hold (for me!).

  • My kids love the commercial street playground in pawtuxet village in Cranston. There’s always friends to be seen, new friends to be made. Plenty of variety for the younger kids, and the older kid crowd is still entertained as well. Particularly enjoyed are the spinning/twirling/get silly & dizzy play structures.

  • My daughter loves Humbolt park. She loves “hiding” in the trees, and she hasn’t figured out that I can see her feet. 🙂

  • This summer’s favorite playground hasa been the Brown Street Park. They are tall enough to use the tree stumps and try to swing from ring to ring. They love challenging themselves on the equipement; playing some gravity tag on the playset (as long as there are no little one around!), then chilling out in the sand box. I love it because the track is nearby, and there is tons of shade for them to play under.

  • World War II Memorial Park in Plainville, MA. Incredible playground (Julia’s Garden) and animals!
