  • COURTESY OF BRISTOL RECREATION DEPARTMENT

Unveiled in the fall of 2014, this play area in the center of Bristol gives young kids lots of options. The eye-pleasing natural wood structure boasts a wheelchair-accessible ramp leading up to a slide and a large wooden platform covered by a roof. AstroTurf blankets the ground. There's a circular set of monkey bars and a smaller structure geared toward the preschool set, with a small slide, tunnel and climbing features. A simpler, separate play area features logs protruding from the sandy ground at different heights, perfect for scampering across. A swing set includes two toddler swings, three regular swings and one handicapped-accessible swing.

Pluses

  • Wheelchair-accessible play structure
  • Convenient parking
  • Picnic table, benches and gazebo on the green make for easy snacking and nursing.
  • Peace Garden created by students at Bristol Elementary School adds to the picturesque surroundings.
  • A stone's throw from lots of yummy food options including gourmet ice cream parlor lu•lu (11 Main Street), and "from scratch" Bristol Bakery & Café (16 Main Street)

Minuses:

  • No bathrooms on-site
  • Older children may find the play structures too small or basic.
