North Cary Park

What it is:  As park season continues, we continue our exploration of any new and interesting park we can find.  This time we headed to North Cary Park.  It was a new and interesting park to check out and definitely had some different features that we hadn't seen before.  There was a good sized play structure to climb on, complete with mini zip rail for the older kids.  On the other side of the play area was a large sand pit with a house to play in and two diggers to sit on.  There were also two slides built into a hill so that kids could either climb steps to get to the top or just run up the hill to take their turn sliding down the slide.  Nearby there were several steep boulders for climbing.  This would definitely be for older children as the rocks were steep and tall.

What we liked: Our favorite part were the slides.  My son is a little scared of heights, so normal slides scare him a little.  Since these slides were build into the hill, they didn't feel like they were as high to him so he confidently ran up the hill and down the slide over and over again. 

What we would change: The boulders were an interesting feature, especially if you like rock climbing.  However, we would have liked it if there were some that toddlers could play on.  As an adult, I even had trouble climbing them.
