22. Norman “Butch” Ellis Rec Center Playground

There are two separate playground areas here–one for big kids and one for little kids–with two sets of swings, three basketball courts, a community garden space to the north, a swimming pool, and these two adorable seals.  Plus, the playground is clean and the cushy pads under the playground aren’t ripped or torn.  Really, what more can you want?  There was some possibly dicey activity going on at one of the street corners near the playground, but the playground area itself was beautiful.
