Brook Run Park Playground

A great thing about the Brook Run Park Playground is they separate the areas for the big kids and smaller toddlers. In the former, a whole series of slides and swings await their needs to pump their adrenaline during playtime. Meanwhile, the latter has smaller jungle-gyms and lower slides so as to avoid kids crying from fear of heights. This way, both groups can play as much as they want without spoiling the fun for each other. Furthermore, the Brook Run Park Playground is one of the safer on this list. You rarely need to go to any hospital afterward.
