The girls and I were excited for the Bill Bojangles Robinson Playground because we love the name. There's something about the word "Bojangles" that makes us giggle, like it is name of a circus mouse. The playground is fairly new and has a lot of unique equipment. We loved the town storefronts (they have a mail slot!) which were perfect for a game of ice cream scooping. The monkey bars were also easy for Annie to hold on to (with a little boost) and Lex spent a good amount of time hanging upside down. The biggest flaw, and perhaps the downfall, of the playground is the ZERO shade. There is no way to escape the brutal sun. And with no water fountain to fill up our bottles, we didn't last long.
