Article Index

Playground1WWonder what the best playground in the Baltimore/Annapolis area is? Kristin Hurff of Cape St. Claire thinks it's the pirate playground at Broadneck Park.

Her older daughter, Caroline age 8, loves swings but her 3-year-old sister, Emma, won't go near them, Hurff says.

So it's a bit of a challenge to find a playground to please both her thrill-seeking daughter and her more cautious child. Fortunately, Broadneck Park's pirate playground is perfect for both girls.

It's "kind of a hidden gem," Hurff says, although it's no secret to the families who flock there for its blend of safety and fun.

Parks and playgrounds offer free summer fun for the whole family. If the kids are tired of the same old playground down the street, there are plenty in the Baltimore/Annapolis vicinity worth driving to. Here are six top destination playgrounds to keep kids active all summer long.
