On the side of at 10 Eileen Court, you'll find challenging slides and climbing structures that are sure to thrill even the most seasoned playground hopper.
The main "course" of equipment is definitely more suitable for children ages 5 and up than for toddlers. It has some super-fast slides that will have the kids squealing. The sliding boards are tall and curved, which makes them extra exciting.
There's also a structure like a spider's web that hangs from posts attached to the rest of the playground so kids can ascend and descend. It's part of an overall obstacle course the children create themselves.
A separate piece of equipment features a rocky slide or climbing structure that looks like a river bed or waterfall.
Circular monkey bars are fun to navigate, and there are at least a dozen swings to keep everyone entertained.
Behind the school is main complex. Not far away is Central Middle School.
Don't forget, it's only appropriate to visit a school playground when school is not in session.
When you visit Northvail, go out to Route 46 for lots of options for refreshments including and or head into Lake Hiawatha for more choices.
