JONES PARK PLAYGROUND
A giant snail sits majestically in the sandpit, ready to be hydrated by the waterspout perched next to it’s solemn head. Did this creature catch a ride on the pirate boat and have tales to impart from the high seas? Is this snail in fact a pirate snail that’s up to no good? Blimey! I’m not sure ye will ever know.
But gather ’round, ye maties, because what we do know is this modest sized playground has a lot going on fer landlubbers like us. The pirate ship here is almost identical to the one at Charleston Park, except fer a bridge plank that attaches the stern to a steep rubber hill. Under the ole shipwreck is a charming wee play table n’ rubber hammock.
At the bottom of the steep hill be a merry go round that seems poorly placed, considering some scallywags might run or accidentally topple down said steep hill. Lastly, thar are two swing sets to enjoy and are placed far away from the main play area, so ye little ones can heave ho as much as they please.
Did ye know that the top deck at the back of a large ship be called the poop deck? Yo ho ho! Now that be a tidbit ye must share with your small maties while they pretend to sail off into the briny deep.
Me hopes the playground here at Jones park will be nicknamed “Pirate Snail Park”. Ye heard it here first, maties.
