Wilson Park- Carrboro
Wilson Park is located in Carrboro on Williams Street (which intersects with Greensboro near Estes Drive). We took C there since we were looking for "baby swings," which Wilson Park has and, it turns out, C hates. We're not giving up though!
This park was great-- large enough to hold a lot of kids on one of the first beautiful spring days without feeling crowded. The play equipment was huge and nice, but, of course, a little too big for C just yet. The children on it, though, seemed to be loving it.
Besides the one large playgym, there were also a few other smaller areas for children to play, one which catered to the smaller ones.
There is a lot of sand around and under the play gyms, but C didn't mind that. It was actually fun to watch him explore the new texture.
There was a lot of space available for picnicking (which we saw some friends doing!) as well. Shade was available for picnicking, but not a lot of cover over the play areas.
Parking is easy at this park, too.
Here's a list of what they've got:
- lighted youth baseball field
- 4 tennis courts
- playground equipment
- picnic tables and grills
- a picnic shelter
- open play areas
- rest rooms
