Don Showman Park Playground in Farmers Branch

The playground (14032 Heartside Pl.) boasts a skate park (complete with skating ramps) and is located near a recreation center and pool. The nicely maintained park has two playgrounds (for the smaller kiddos and bigger ones), is a safe distance from the streets and has plenty of parking. The larger playscape is covered (ideal for Texas weather) and has a multitude of slides and bridges, with plenty of benches for parents to sit on. There are picnic tables, a bike rack and lamp posts (for those early evening play dates). For the smaller kiddos, there are two mounted rocking horses (which are always a delight for the children), one tall twisted slide and a swing set.
