Not So Lazy Days: Climbing away the afternoon at the new Fullerton playground
Because the weather was iffy, we decided to take a playground day and explore a playground we've been to before, but not like this.
The playground at Fullerton Memorial Park on Zelley Ave., Moorestown, was closed and removed about a year ago for safety issues. This spring, after raising funds and even getting elementary school students involved in the plans, volunteers built a brand new playground.
The boys enjoyed playing with the rope elements, hanging from the rings, climbing to the highest point and just exploring every nook.
At the playground entrance is a castle theme. To the opposing side is a space theme. Then, in the toddler area (for ages 2-5) there's a stationary wooden train to conduct.
One of my favorite aspects from the previous Fullerton playground is still there-- the shade from a tree in the middle of the playground and trees along the border of the playground.
There is still some grass waiting to grow (the area is caution-taped off to prevent people from walking on it), and there's possibly even a section of fence waiting to arrive (another taped off part), so kids do need to be reminded not to limbo into those areas.
About the Not So Lazy Days series
I've challenged myself to find a new activity to do five days a week every week of the kids' summer vacation. Activities will fall under one of three categories: Arts & Crafts, Sports & Games or Field Trips. Follow me on Twitter @readallaboutsam for immediate updates on posts!
