American Village Park - Durham

We're posting about this park primarily because you need to know about it for tomorrow's post. Ooo, intrigue. But, really, could this playground be any cuter?

First, the name screams Americana, white picket fences, and large front porches. Second, this park maintained by the city is tucked away in a community. And then, third, it looks like your entire neighborhood and all of your best friends dropped their toys off here and left them for your kids to play with.
The playground has shovels, dump trucks, cars, motorcycles, small basketball hoops, and so much more. All in addition to the playground equipment. This reminded me a lot of the meant-to-be-private Fearrington Village Playground.

The equipment itself is nice. Fairly new, and meant primarily for toddlers as it is small in height and scale. There are swings, including buckets.

Ground cover is sand (which you all know drives me nuts) but it is worth the nuisance for how toddler friendly this park is.

Amenities:
  • Grills(1)
  • Picnic Tables(6)
  • Playground
  • Picnic Shelter(SMALL)
  • Water Fountain

Ooo, intrigue - what could you be posting today?? :) Glad you enjoyed the park... We've been really happy to have it near our house. The Easter Egg hunt is coming up there this Sunday, if anyone's interested - the chaos begins at 10 AM.
