Playgrounds like Courtney Callendar are the reason the girls and I love park hopping so much. We’re walking down the street, trying to spot the next set of monkey bars when bam!, an awesome playground comes out of nowhere. Courtney Callendar has all the classics plus some awesome new features. The first thing the girls and I noticed were the mini picnic tables. Kids love anything built for their size, and something as simple as a table is no exception. Next, the sprinkler shoots out water at least 10 feet in the air and onto a hand-painted map of the world. The girls and I had a blast “traveling the world” through the “thunderstorm.” I shouted out a continent and the girls would have to run to it, tons of fun. The jungle gym itself is also worth mentioning. Equipped with the “running ramps” I love, it also has a wide open gazebo area and a reverse-rockwall. Overall, this playground is cheerful, pleasant, and really fun!!
