Bridgewater Playgrounds

Bridgewater is home to TWO magnificent playgrounds that we’ve visited!

Kid Street Playground in Bridgewater New Jersey is more like a kids’ town. It’s amazingly cool! When you enter under the wooden archway it’s like you’ve entered a wooden town with a town hall, police station, fire station, bank, and more. But don’t let that classic wood structure fool you, it’s home to lots of modern playground structures too.

Prepared to be wowed again with a Somerset County playground. Warren Municipal Park Playground has one big play structure! There aren’t many we’ve seen that have three levels.

There is also a playground for toddlers and preschoolers.
