Playground #8: Shades Beach

Shade’s Beach has a large modern playground in it. Actually, there are two – one for young kids, and one for more adventurous/bigger kids. It is also near the beach (hence the name) with a newly designed breakwall and harbor. While you can walk out on the breakwall, the construction changed the water flow patterns such that algae tends to collect next to it so it tends to be smelly and make the beach itself unusable.

Isaac enjoyed sliding down the fireman’s pole.

Alix liked climbing onto the play structure all the different ways – stepping stones, ladder, steps.

Mom liked the path leading into the woods.  It’s about a mile and a half walk if you do the whole thing (and it’s not a loop, so you do need to go out and come back).  If you go at the right time, you may even find some blackberries.
