Lockwood Playground, upgraded with help from the community a couple of years ago, isn't giant. And the main play structure is geared primarily for kids ages 5 to 12, with tall slides and climbing structures, including a big synthetic rock (my seven-year-old's favorite).
There is a sand area here with a couple of diggers. And there's some green space to run around, along with a few scattered benches and picnic tables.
One drawback: No bathroom. Parking is along Crabtree Boulevard.
For a closer look at Lockwood Park, watch the video.
Find Lockwood Playground at 1200 Crabtree Boulevard. It's about 1.3 miles from WakeMed's Raleigh Campus on New Bern Avenue.
