We were on the Cape for the day and decided to visit the playground at the Johnny Kelley Recreation area because it is made of 100% recycled materials. Reviewers loved the shade, but found some of the equipment kind of random. We liked that equipment was spread out and there were plenty of places to play. There are plenty of benches and picnic tables, so this is a great spot for parents to relax on vacation if they trust their kids not to run away, because it's not fenced in. 

The kids really liked the old fashioned swings. Jacob said that he felt like he was flying.

No one quite knew what to do with this. They wanted to like it, but couldn't seem to squeeze the fun out of it.
