Franklin Boulevard Playground – Atlantic County Parks & Playgrounds
We recently came across a playground in Absecon that we never knew existed! This little gem is set back off the road at the dead end of Franklin Boulevard in Absecon. Check it out next time you’re in the area!
Our 5 Favorite things about Franklin Boulevard Playground…
- This playground is at the end of a dead end road, so there is very little traffic in the area.
- The jungle gym provides a little bit of everything, several slides, rock walls, rings, and more.
- There are no sports fields at this park, but there is plenty of wide open space all around the jungle gym on all sides for playing tag, having a catch, or even having a picnic.
- There are benches all around the jungle gym for parents to watch their children.
- Mulch surrounds the entire jungle gym for a soft surface.
Things to know before you visit Franklin Boulevard Playground
- This playground does not have an actual parking lot, but the street it is located on is very wide and has plenty of room for on-street parking.
- This park has a very open setup, which allows for easy viewing of the children while they play. However, there is little to no shade, so make sure to bring sunscreen/hats/any other sun protection you feel necessary.
- Playground equipment can become HOT on a very sunny and warm day, so I’d suggest visiting this park early in the morning or later in the evening on the hottest summer days.
- There are no bathrooms or picnic tables on site at the park! Very important to know for anyone with smaller children.
Franklin Boulevard Playground is located at the dead end of Franklin Boulevard in Absecon, with the closest intersection being East Bolton Ave and Franklin Boulevard.
