Heritage Park sprawls across nearly 10 acres with beautiful trees that make you forget about the rush of the city. There are two playgrounds for ages 2–12 and 5–12, although even the toddlers were playing on the larger equipment with parents’ help. Slides, a tunnel, rock-climbing wall and swings rounded out a great variety for all ages. An unusual climbing structure made from a web of ropes was definitely a winner with my kids, as were the bouncy steps – take the kids and check them out. There are numerous benches and picnic tables as well as trashcans and water fountains. Another plus is the basketball and tennis courts to the north of the play structures. A walkway connects the park to the Botanical Gardens at Heritage Park, which has a plethora of flowers, bushes, trees and water features and is a great place for portraits. Bring a picnic lunch and your basketball or tennis equipment to enjoy some time in this peaceful setting in the middle of the city.
