3 Reasons My Family Loves Dorbrook Recreation Area

  • It’s surrounded by a beautiful shady and grassy area. Our family loves to pack a big blanket and snacks to bring with us. When the kids need a break from playing in the sun, we stretch out under a tree to relax for a few minutes.
  • It’s in walking distance to the Dorbrook Sprayground, a super fun and free spray park open during the summer months. My kids love visiting the Sprayground until they get cold, and then getting changed and playing on the playground to warm up.
  • The squishy, rubbery ground makes it really hard to skin a knee or elbow when someone takes a tumble. My 3 year-old tends to be a bit accident-prone and there were no tears after a few falls.
