Playground Review: Morrisville Community Park

Posted August 11, 2011

The playground at Morrisville Community Park isn't the place to go when it's really hot and sunny out. There's no shade at this park off Morrisville Parkway.

I was there last week as temperatures shot into the high 90s and I was pretty much the only person there. Morrisville Community Park Playground Review: Morrisville Community Park

But this will be a great place to visit as we move into cooler weather. The large playground includes a massive structure for older kids featuring (what I'm calling) a dragon. A smaller playset for toddlers and preschoolers sits right next to a good-sized sand area and some bouncy animals. And there are swings for everybody.

Restrooms sit right next to the playground. There's also a large covered picnic area, a greenway connection and ball fields.

Take a closer look at Morrisville Community Park in the video.

    A nice shady park is Rockwood Park in Durham. It has both little kids and big kids playsets, benches, bathrooms, and a nice 0.3 mile jogging/bike trail that is paved.
