We have visited this playground twice this summer, and both times, reviewers were underwhelmed. 

As an adult, this simply blows my mind, because the playground seems to have everything you could want- two structures, a sandbox, interesting slides, and bathrooms nearby. 

"Boring," they say. "No thank you." 

"Why?" I ask wistfully, remembering happy mornings spent here with my kids as toddlers.

"Boring, for little kids," they say.

The slides were good and fast.

These slides are like Arlington Junior. Not as awesome as the ones at Robbins Farm Park, but pretty good for the South Shore.

Be careful on the slides. One launched me into the air and I landed sideways. It hurt. Be careful.
