25. Christy Rec Center Playground

This was an unexpectedly great playground.  There’s a rocking horse and a rocking pelican (!) plus a little kids’ playground and a big kids’ playground and lots and lots of swings (probably the most of any playground we visited?) so there should never be any wait.  The rec center has a pool and tennis courts and playing fields and on the Saturday afternoon that we were there, the joyous sounds of a basketball game inside echoed throughout the playground.  And the murals–including the one of the dancing kids seen in one of the photos below–is really well done.
