Not So Lazy Days: Playing at Fort Medford playground
After the temperature went down a bit and a slight breeze could be felt, we traveled to Fort Medford playground in Medford on Commonwealth Drive.
The playground is part of the Bob Meyer park complex with baseball/softball field, basketball courts tennis courts and multi-use fields. There is a separate parking lot at the playground.
Fort Medford looks just like that-- a fort with a Native American theme, complete with teepees and totem poles. The play structures are like simple climbing mazes, keeping kids from taking the same route twice.
It is also built like a cluster of playgrounds-- a main area with a toddler area off to one side, a more modern playground to the other, and a pirate-themed area straight ahead.
In fact, the boys didn't even notice one of the sections until I pointed it out to them. They were thrilled with every discovery they made around each corner.
The little one definitely had a favorite spot, though. He always came back to the large sandbox near the entrance.
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!
