The Seuss-like playground is wavy and curvy with lots of things to climb on: monkey bars, slides, net-like things. Kids love the rail slide, on which they slide down on/between two rails.

Our little ones tested out these top spots, from old-school (completely made of wood) to modern masterpieces to ones that have attached splash pads for when the mercury rises. With so many free, warm-weather options, who needs summer camp?
