Tucked behind the Plano Senior Center and among tree-lined walking and biking trails, the Harrington Park playground offers lots of fun activities to get kids on their feet. Nestled near the park’s sand volleyball court and ball fields, this playscape earned an A on DallasChild’s Safety Report Card.*
Cushioned with a layer of pebbles, the playground features three slides, a curvy crawl space and challenging monkey bars. Nearby swings, including a cool tire swing, provide extra fun for kids of all ages. On the downside, the park doesn’t have a separate playscape for younger children. But the shaded trails and nearby picnic tables make this park the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon with older kids.
This review was distributed to Plano Parks and Recreation for further review and/or action.
