4 Reasons to Love Imagination Station Playground

 

  • The playground offers multi-age playground equipment; there is something for everyone.

 

  • Imagination Station is 100% handicap accessible.

 

  • Imagination Station has a soft, cushiony, play surface and not the traditional mulch or sand you find at most playgrounds. It is easy to walk on.

 

Imagination Station has recently added 2 new sets of “expression swings”.   These swings allow baby/toddler to face mom or dad while they swing together.  This unique swing style allows for a whole new swinging experience for both the child and the caregiver!

These expression swings let an adult swing with a child while being face to face with that child.

 What you also should know about Imagination Station Playground

  • If you have more than one child, it can be hard to keep track of them. The size and structure of the playground equipment limit visibility of all areas. Many of my friends feel this is a park where if you are bringing more than 1 child, you need more that one parent there. I do agree with their assessment.
  • The toddler section is not separate from the older kids area; it is steps away from it so younger children maybe tempted to run off to those areas.
  • In the big kids section of Imagination Station Playground, there are higher areas that are open (sudden drop off points) and a child could potentially fall off of.
  • Imagination Station is next to the Galloway Library, making it a great way to end or begin any visit to the library.
