Al Ruschhaupt Park in McKinney

Al Ruschhaupt Park in McKinney, not to be confused with the nearby soccer complex, is awesome!
The park appeared to be new and had many visitors the day we were there. The splash fountain was a welcome relief from the heat for our 8-year-old daughter, who enjoyed running through the fountain barefoot and guessing if and when she’d get sprayed. The park provided a relaxing atmosphere with nearby seating to watch the kids play.

When our daughter grew tired of the spray fountain, we hopped onto their humongous playscape. The only three drawbacks were that the playscape was designed for 2-5 year olds (not ideal for our two-year-old), there was a nearby sign along the walking trail that read “beware of snakes” (yikes!), and there were unsupervised neighborhood kids (at least two children were younger than my eight-year-old).

There was a cool swing set at this park with two interesting swings that I’d not seen before. It appeared to resemble a toddler car seat. I had a good laugh watching my daughter swing.
