Morrisville Community Park

What it is: One of the other Stir Crazy Moms told us about this park in Morrisville, and at first I was a little hesitant to check it out.  Morrisville sounded pretty far away for a park outing.  Then, as I looked at the map I realized that this part of Morrisville was actually closer than downtown Durham from our location in South Durham, not a bad drive at all.

So, we headed off to check it out one day this week.  It's a fairly big park with some grassy fields as well as a large playground area with a gazebo and picnic shelter for eating.  The playground had a ton of equipment for our kids to explore.  There was a large sand area, some bucket swings as well as big kid swings, a smaller play structure for the younger kids, and a giant play structure for the bigger ones. 

What we liked: This park had lots of different things for the kids to do.  It seemed like it could even keep the really active kids busy for a while.  Plus, the bigger structure was a little different from ones we were used to so it gave us something new to explore.  There was also enough grassy area for our kids to have room to run and for us to be able to spread out some blankets and enjoy our snacks in the shade.

What we would change:  I don't know if this is always the case, but on the day we went it was pretty crowded.  There were several school groups there as well as other adults and their kids.  The big kids did pretty much stay on the larger play structure so that the little ones could play on the other one, but it was definitely daunting for some of our shyer toddlers.
