Best Playgrounds In The Tri-State – Leslie’s Top Five

Winter is FINALLY gone and that means more fun times outside!! For many of us, this means trips to the playground. But, which one to go to? Are some of the parks worth a little bit of a drive? Or, even a long drive? YES!!! There are SO many awesome parks in the Tri-State but I decided to narrow it down to five for you. In no particular order…. :-)

Fortress of Fun

In Newburgh, IN there lies a fortress. Not just any fortress but The Fortress of Fun!! It is THE perfect place for kids. A fairly new, wooden playground with slides, bridges and towers. It’s surrounded by shady areas to run and play!! Newburgh is located in Warrick Couty. Mke this playground a definite part of your summertime plans!!  My 8 and 9 year olds (acting as my blogging consultants) gave it….. **** stars out of 5

Mt. Vernon, in typical Posey county fashion, appeals to our imaginations with….you guested it….Imagination Station. The playground was actually designed by the kids in the community.  They also named it because it is located by the library, the picked the name Imagination Station. Very clever. It is an supper fun place to play and as an added bonus, you can visit the library which has numerous summertime activites planned. My kids gave it… *** out of 5 stars.

Kid’s Kingdom

Kid's Kingdom

Located in the heart of downtown Evansville, near the Ohio River is Kid’s Kingdom. A truly magical whimsical playground. Once, I actually pretented I was a princess at the playground. Was it when I was a child, NO! It was just last year during a concert ticket scavenger hunt. I hid in a tower and waited for my prince to come. He didn’t, but, a VERY happy lady won free concert tickets!!  The setting is incredibly beautiful with many areas for parents to sit and smile as they watch their children play. The playground is also surrounded by a walking path.  My kids gave it….**** out of 5 stars!
