It was pouring rain, but reviewers couldn't stand the thought of staying in the van when we pulled up to Highlands Community Playground. They were impressed with the amount of "Big Kid Things," including many challenging climbers. They quickly figured out that slides could become an even greater adventure when paired with a wet windbreaker. They were eager to revisit this playground in the sun, and noticed that the same covers that shielded them from the rain would also provide great shade opportunities. They noticed that the entire playground is fenced in for littler kids.
Highlands Community Playground is on the Braintree/Holbrook line, on the grounds of the former Norfolk County Hospital.
