As we wave goodbye to summer and welcome fall, now is a good time to squeeze in a few more playground outings before the weather turns cold and wet. And what better way to slide into autumn, than by actually sliding. We’ve rounded up a handful of playgrounds with kid-approved, fun-filled slides. Just remember… when you take the tykes to these playgrounds, it’s more up and down and up and down (and well, you know the drill).

A first look at this awesome playground will have everyone in your crew excited to play, even mom and dad! There’s a variety of slides, some thrilling enough for bigger kids and some more suited for the Littles. And when your crew gets tired of going up and down, there are two climbing walls, a lookout tower, and a modern merry-go-round, plus plenty of things to spin, climb, swing and explore.

Park Extra: If your tykes love to get their hands (and feet) dirty, grab your buckets and shovels and hit the cool sandbox or take a leisurly stroll along the winding trails to the the water habitat.
