Playground #9: Burchfield Park

The grandparents took us to Burchfield Park for a picnic lunch.  This is a really cool nature preserve and art center with walking paths along the river and statuary in the park.  There’s even a free art gallery you can visit while you’re there.  Plus, there is a very fun playground – one designed for kids 5-12, and one for kids 2-5.  The playgrounds look like treehouses with a wide variety of climbing and sliding options.

Isaac enjoyed the big curly slide.  This one was so big, you spiralled around twice!  There were several other big slides as well – each one unique, and three very tall.

Alix was very intrigued by the metal sculpture cave in the sculpture garden that you can go inside.  There’s even a picnic table inside if you want to eat lunch.

Mom and Dad enjoyed the walking path (Isaac got to ride his bike on the paths) in the woods and around some lovely gardens.



  1. Glad you had a good time. Do you have any pictures?

  2. We were a little behind in getting the pictures up – how’s it look now?

  3. Great! Good views of the slides.
