The Windward Beach Park is a brand new addition to Windward Beach. The previous playgound was destroyed in Hurricane Sandy. The new park is bigger and better, with many updates and additions.

 

3 Reasons my Family Loves Windward Beach Park

  • The View: This park is located on Windward Beach. It is so refreshing to sit on a park bench and watch your children run and play while taking in the magnificent views of the Metedaconk River. There is a swimming beach at this park. Lifeguards man the beach during the summer months. Badges are required to use the beaches and are available for purchase at the lifeguard stand.

 

  • NO WOODCHIPS: The playground just had its grand opening in July 2014. Everything is brand new. From the equipment to the bathrooms, to the landscaping, it’s all up to date. The best thing about this park being brand new is that there are no wood chips.  Instead of wood chips all surfacing around the equipment is made of soft rubber material that actually has a slight bounce to it. The color of the surfacing is light so that during the hot summer months your little ones won’t get burned if they happen to sit down, or walk barefoot on it. My daughter was running and fell two times and both times was completely fine, with no injuries thanks to the soft surface.

 

  • Separate sides for different age groups: Often when at parks and playgrounds, I worry about bigger kids being a little bit to rough around my 3 year old. The Windward Beach Park has settled my nerves. There are two separate play areas at this playground; one for 2-5 year olds and another for 5-12 year olds.

  • Parking: the lots are close to the equipment and the spaces ample

With the vast variety of equipment, we were able to spend an hour exploring and playing at this playground!
