If you’re getting tired of your neighborhood playground, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Smith’s playground is opening for the season today! I know this is late notice to catch their “Play-a-Palooza” grand opening (10am-1pm today), but don’t fret. Here are their seasonal hours:
(for children 10 and under)
(for children 5 and under)
Make a note that they are closed on Mondays! I often forget about that and no one needs a car full of excited kids who have to be disappointed when you arrive to a “closed” sign.
The beautiful think about Smith is that there is no cost. It is donation only, even the play house, with three floors of kid-friendly fun.
And there is no food allowed on the playground. Only water is permitted. This is very annoying with little ones, so make sure to fill them up before you get there or have a picnic under the trees out front before heading in. It is a beautiful spot for a picnic. If you go in the play house, there is an area designated for eating.
If you missed it last season, make sure to check out the new addition to the playground: the tot lot. This is a huge play area for little ones that is super cute. There is a full play ship, train, and much more. And the last time I drove by, the scaffolding was finally taken down from the mansion, so you should get a peak at the results.
