Lakeland FL Sunflower Playground – Yet Another Reason to Love Lakeland Florida
Lakeland FL Sunflower Playground is a New-Found favorite of Preschool Parent’s.
The Sunflower Playground would definitely be your bet for the coolest playground in Lakeland FL, especially if you parent young children between ages three to five years. At first I wondered what this park was all about. I had no idea since I didn’t have children or grandchildren of the said age bracket. But then I decided lately to take time to visit Lakeland Sunflower Park. Located nearby Lake Mirror and Botanical Hollis Gardens is the Barnett Park, where the Sunflower Preschool Playground is situated. The Barnett Park has a playground for children of older age but just nothing for the little ones, and the lack of a better-suited playground for them made them feel as if they’re out-of-place when their parents brought them to play.
Sunflower Preschool Playground opened in the fall of the past year, 2010. Its structure was inspired by the successful Common Ground Playground located in Lakeland, FL on Edgewood Drive, and it is a known fact that such place is still visited by thousand of kids and parents of varying backgrounds.
What’s most attractive about the Sunflower Playground is the bright and lively color scheme featured. The grass was a combination of colors of orange, blue and yellow. More importantly, its cushioned safety surface is rated for fall heights up to 12 feet. Parents are then secure about the fact that accidents are less likely to occur here and that their children are less likely to get hurt.
With a camera in hand, I walked around to find out what parent and grandparents had to say about the park. Unsurprisingly so, they all spoke highly of the Sunflower Playground and recommended it to everyone who has preschool children. What’s even cool and liked by them about it was that was fenced in so the children were very free to roam around the area. They say “as you watch your little one, you can at the same time keep an eye on your older children at the nearby playground while they climb, swing and play with other children”. Being a mother of two children and a grandmother to their kids, I would say that Sunflower Playground is truly a good-find for parents of preschool children who are looking for such a wonderful place like this one.
The playground’s construction, its design and its functionality, aside from its aesthetic value are all in all amazing. I could see that the kids who were there playing at the time I visited really had a lot of fun.
Furthermore, the Sunflower Playground is again another reason for Lakeland’s being considered as one of the best cities where its perfect to raise Children in. It’s also why I think it’s a “Great Place to Live”.
Lakeland, FL Sunflower Preschool Playground is daily open to the public daily, from 8:00 in the morning until dusk.
