The Coolest Park Ever!

At the suggestion of a friend, we stopped at Deer Creek Park in Maplewood, MO, as part of today’s tour of parks. I thought the children might explode with joy when they saw the playground:

It was like it had been built just for our family–so fun!

    Aww yeah. Rocket Park rules!

    I used to go there when I was about Turkey’s age. It’s been updated since — I remember a lot more rusty metal and less plastic — but that rocket slide was THE COOLEST THING EVER at that age. πŸ™‚

    My parents probably have a bunch of pictures of me running around that park in the late ’80s. Hmm…

  2. We used to pass that park all the time when we lived in Maplewood – we never stopped. Guess we weren’t in a “park” mentality back then. πŸ™‚

    I remember going to this park when I was little. They changed the playground up to make it a lot safer, but this looks a lot cooler. Memories.
