Scott E Merulla Playground in Bellmawr

Posted on: March 26th, 2019 by

Last weekend, I passed this playground 4 times while driving around for street hockey tournaments in Bellmawr. The colorful climbing structures of the Scott E. Merulla Playground stood out from the road and I knew I had to stop by to check it out.

 

Thankfully, when the games were all over, the sun was still out and my youngest agreed to check it out. We both loved it! I’m not sure which climber we loved the most. Truth be told when it was time to go I had a hard time getting my son to leave. Take a look at the details about this Bellmawr playround including our video and pictures. Let us know which area your kids would love most. We’re sure they will love it as much as we did.
