Have you ever heard the saying “you never really grow up?”. Well it certainly is true when it comes to playgrounds. The Johnson-Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre recently put in a new playground, and it was pretty hard to resist climbing and swinging all over it, which is exactly what I did. There is a large swing that is wide enough to lay on, a rope jungle gym leading to a high above platform, monkey bars, balancing ropes, and even a tiny jungle gym for tots.
Sometimes it’s great to let go of worries and play, even for a few minutes.
After having some fun, we then went around the back of the building to where the skate park is located to take a picture of the new mural. There were lots of small details, such as birds and fish, you would only notice up close because they are hidden in the picture. It was painted at the museum last summer; it was amazing to see the progression of this project!
If you have kids that are looking for a fun place to go, drop by Johnson-Bentley to get in a swim and/or a play. It is sure to be a good time.
