Saturday morning, Little Missy and I set out. I had a route with 9 parks and I figured we would just get to as many as possible. We made it to 6. We also found a few extras on the way, but will go back and see those sometime later.
This is one I found on Google Maps. You could tell that there was a neat formation, so I thought it was a must to check out. It ended up being a huge, concrete structure. It was odd, but neat.
A few weeks ago while exploring, we discovered the other half of this park featuring a large whale. It’s on the other side of the water from this side. The second playground was across the street and was in the front of a couple big apartment buildings. None of the kids out front were playing on it though, they were all catching cicadas.
The infamous dropslide! This is actually the third dropslide we’ve found on island. This park was right by the expressway, but you’ll never see it from there. There was a couple playgrounds and an observation tower. We climbed it, but there was a group of teenage boys trying to talk to me with their limited knowledge of English, so we left pretty quick. They also had their shirts off. If you’ve lived here, you’ll understand why that was so weird. They just don’t do that here! Oh, and Little Missy did go down the dropslide. She refused to go down the correct way though and kept going on her belly.
This is another I found on Google Maps. The shape of the whale is obvious, so it became another must do. The playground hadn’t been kept up, but there were tons of old people playing croquet at the park! A ship next to the whale was set up as a zipline. The inside of the whale was covered in graffiti and the grass was in serious need of a mow, but it was a great little playground.
