summer park review, #2

My second official park review...
Today we went to Northwood Park, or Castle Park, in Irvine.
We give it 4.5 stars out of 5!
(and the only reason for it not being a perfect 5 was that the
baby swings were not under an canopy, and it was
pretty warm!)
This is a GREAT park...and both my kids were happy there!

Obviously, it has a castle theme, with this giant castle, great for hide and seek!A good park is better with friends.
Jack had Christina to play with...and Molly had Mia!Because of the community center, they even have
different balls you can borrow... They had several play structures,
perfect for all stages of play! Besides being hot, this was a perfect park.
I am sure we will be back...
plus, it's so close to Ken's new school AND Chik-Fil-A!
(It's also a sentimental park for me. When I babysat for my
favorite family, I took the boys here many, many times...
and now, one of them is in college, and 2 are in high school!
Their mom met me there today, just for a quick visit!)

You should also try Tewinkle Park in Costa Mesa. It's really new and lots of fun. I still take Eric there when we head down that way. He loves it.
