Apex has what I think is one of the best playgrounds in the Triangle at Kelly Road Park.
The 25-acre park, which sits behind Olive Chapel Elementary School at 1609 Kelly Rd., includes KidsTowne playground, a collection of turrets and corridors for running around in. The community turned out a decade ago to volunteer to build the playground.
The two-story structure with obstacles, rings and other play equipment is a favorite of many families. There's also a separate section for younger kids. Playground review: Kelly Road Park
And I love that it's mostly enclosed by a fence. I just wish there was some shade.
See it for yourself in this video. Thanks to Kristi of North Raleigh and her family for letting me spend some time with them the other day!
