Temple Playground

20 Jul

So I have to admit, when my husband mentioned an old playground behind the Temple Fire Company I was a bit skeptical but I am so glad we decided to follow his intuition !

Image

Location: The Temple Playground is at the intersection of 10th and Euclid Ave in Temple Pa. It can also be accessed by turning into the Temple Fire Company and following 10th ave to the park. The Muhlenburg Rail Trail also runs behind the park.

Accessibility: This park is accessible to everyone. The entrance is paved, while the areas under the play equipment have wood chips. The park is not a far walk from any of the available walking (I didn’t even need my stroller ! )

Amenities: Temple Playground features new play equipment ! There is a smaller toddler area with baby swings. The main playground area has a rock climbing wall, slide etc. The swings also feature a swing seat for handicapped children. The park is well maintained with a pavilion (that also features an indoor room for rental), basketball courts, a small creek and a portable bathroom

Ages: as with most playgrounds I would say the equipment is ment for walkers on up. The smaller area is great for little ones just learning their way around steps and slides.

This is a great park and playground if your looking for that outdoor feel close to all the hustle and bustle. I’m very excited to say that this will be a new playground stop while we are out running errands in the 5th street highway area !

Rustic Park

12 Jul

Located in Birdsboro PA, Rustic Park is definatly one of my new favorite locations !

  • Location: 1314 Hay Creek Road Birdsboro PA. It can be a little tricky to find, follow the road over the train tracks and you will dead end into the gravel parking lot.
  • Accessibility: Most strollers/wagons should work on the gravel trail and grassy areas. There are no steps, with the exception being the slope of the low bank that runs along side the creek.
  • Ages: all ages they really have something for everyone !
  • Attire: I would suggest to dress for the weather with a spare change of clothes ! The creek that runs along side the park is great for wading and very clean. There are lots of stones and rocks so water shoes or something of the like are highly recommended !
  • Amenities: there are 4 pavilions at rustic park which I believe all have a grill. They are medium sized and are available to rent through bridsboro parks and recreation ( you do not have to be a resident) The bathrooms are accessible by key only !!! which means there are no public restrooms at this park unless you are renting a pavilion.
  • Busy Times: there is a playground program during the summer at this park. The program utilizes the last pavilion and the play equipment that is at the end of the path.

The park runs along side of Hay Creek which seems to be well maintained and in my opinion was the highlight of our day trip. My husband and myself were able to take our two daughters 22mo and 10mo into the water. It was very clean and had a low bank on the side with the park.

Unlike many other parks/playgrounds we have visited, Rustic park features play equipment and swings spread out along a gravel path . Some of the play areas are more shaded then others but we still had fun on a hot day !

Rustic park is a wonderful, quiet location that is truly tucked away and available to those who are willing to seek out some of the areas natural treasures.

Stoudts Ferry Bridge Road Playground

20 Jun

Today, despite the heat we decided to vist the Stoudts Ferry Bridge Road Playgroud located just past the intersections of Tuckerton and Stoudts Ferry Bridge Road in Muhlenburg.

The playground features some new playground equimpment and some unique pieces. It really has something for every age group. The ground underneath the equipment is wood chips so I would recommend sneakers!
