The winter is officially over, and spring is here! And you know what this means, time to take advantage of the great outdoors, grab your kids and go have some playground* fun in the burbs…. I have polled some of my trusted confidantes, and here are their top five favorite playgrounds in the area, specifically in Weston, Wellesley, Wayland and Needham:
Tavernside Playground, 358 Boston Post Road – Located right in Weston center, this is playground central for all Weston parents with young kids. Swings, see saws, a large, shaded sand box, play structures and so much more.
Perrin Park, 99 Thomas Road – Situated at the end of a quiet street, Perrin Park has a play choice for everyone. Wellesley Patch sums it up, “The large park features a soccer field, a multi-aged playground and picnic tables. The playground is well shaded during afternoon hours, and the park is open to the public from sunup to sundown.”
Warren Park, 90 Washington Street – This park, set right off of Route 16, is always overflowing with families and kids of all ages. Per Wellesley Patch, “The park is beautiful and spacious, with fields for picnicking and a baseball diamond. The park features two playgrounds: a tall structure for children aged 5 to 12 and a smaller structure designed for toddlers. The fields are wheelchair accessible and free parking is located behind the health department building.”
Hannah Williams Playground, Main Street – Located steps from Route 30′s Cochituate Village, this playground has been one of my children’s favorites for years, and it just reopened a little more than a year ago after a complete overhaul and renovation. “The playground is open from dawn to dusk and features a jungle gym, gazebo and large grassy area for picnics or small games. The park is maintained by the Town of Wayland; [and], the wood structure in the park was paid for by a community fundraising effort.”
Perry Park, Beaufort Avenue near Great Plain Avenue – Winning high praise from Needham residents, Perry Park features a baseball diamond, play structures, basketball court and other fabulous playground choices. This is a place for kids of all ages to have fun.
Have you frequented any of these incredible playgrounds? Where do you have playground fun in the ‘burbs, and are your favorites on the list above? I can’t wait to hear…
