Playground Review: The Green at The Shops at Park Lane in Dallas

Location: 8080 Park Lane, Dallas. The playground is across the street from Bowl & Barrel and next to Hair Fairies.

What makes it noteworthy: This modest playground within the Shops at Park Lane makes for the perfect pit stop when your kids reach their quota of dressing rooms and check out lines. The single-structure playground has a tunnel, slide, rock climbing wall and lots of things to climb.

Extras: This playground has just enough to do to give kids a break on your shopping trip, but won’t entertain them all afternoon. If they need more play time, bring a Frisbee to toss around in the adjacent yard or head across the street to Bowl & Barrel.

Safety: The Green earned an A* the Playground Safety Report Card. While there are not separate play structures for tots and bigger kids, posted rules and new equipment keeps kiddos safe.
