Lake Lynn Playground

Comments Off on Lake Lynn Playground

Lake Lynn playground is located just behind Lake Lynn community center off of Ray road. This playground is within walking distance of our home, so  we’ve spent a good bit of time there.

They have 2 different areas, a 2-5 year old and 5-12 year old playgrounds.

Both are wood chip surfaces.

The toddler playground is pretty nice, probably one of our favorites:

It’s pretty low to the ground, which is nice for young toddlers to explore. They also have 2 baby swings. This structure also has a ramp entry for those little ones who have difficulty with stairs.

I don’t know where they got these ride on structures, but they seem kind of vintage to me since they are made of metal. My 3 year old enjoys them.

They also have a monkey bar/rock climbing structure which is fun for older toddlers. My 3 year old finds it challenging but not (too) frustrating. It’s too high for my 18 month old…and that’s a good thing!!

I like the older kids playground too, it is not to challenging for my 3 year old, and my 18 month old can maneuver it with some help.We inevitably end of at the big kids area of any playground.

Pro’s:

  • Toddler area is suitable for younger toddlers (age 1-2) just learning how to use playground equipment, slides but still has plenty of things for older toddlers to do.
  • Next door to community center that has nice bathrooms. You will also pass a vending machine on the way to bathrooms (which may or may not be a good thing!!)
  • Fairly shaded during the morning hours.
  • Playground is adjacent to a green way loop around Lake Lynn, so if you are looking to squeeze a run/walk in before or after playtime you don’t have to go anywhere! It is rolling hills so it’s a pretty decent workout.
  • Lake Lynn is also home to geese, ducks and turtles. It’s just a short walk for your little one to see some wildlife.
  • Playground has 2 infant swings which is a pro for some but probably not everyone. Sometimes it is hard to get my kiddos OFF the swings.
  • Covered pavilion next to playground with picnic tables.
  • Several benches around the playground

Con’s

  • Lake Lynn community center does track out camps, so sometimes school age children are outside. It can get pretty loud, but they are usually in a nearby field and not on the playground itself.
