The kids and I were on a mission to cool off a few weeks ago, so we ventured out to Edgewood Park in Barberton to check out their Sprayground.

I am pretty impressed with the park, it is well kept, has lot of green space and plenty of shade.  The playground equipment is very large with lots of different slides and climbing equipment.  There is a separate playground area for smaller children.

The Spraygroud was large and very clean as well.  The kids enjoyed the feature in the middle of the sprayground that periodically dumped buckets of water on them.

Some of the water features were working, but there was still plenty of fun to be had!

    We just went to this park yesterday. The kids totally loved it, and I thought it was very nice, but I noticed a lot of the features were still not working. The main tall ones were working fine, but only about 3 of the dozen or so in-ground fountain nozzle thingies were working. Still liked it and will go back for sure. The only other con was the group of foul-mouthed adults standing near the playground structure. (Hey, I have been known to swear like a truck driver at times, but I usually control myself when I’m at a playground! I counted about seven f-bombs out of one woman in less than 5 minutes… with her small children and my 2yr old & 6yr old all within earshot. Classy!) We went in the early evening yesterday, but if we go on a weekday morning or afternoon instead, I think we’d have better luck…

      Glad you had fun! We’ve been back a couple times since I originally posted, and the kids have enjoyed it each time. It is unfortunate that they haven’t gotten all the water features fixed yet, but it’s still a lot of fun.

      I always cringe when I hear people talking that way near children. We had a similar experience at a parade last weekend. Very unfortunate.

      Take Care!

    My family has been going to the Ft Island/Griffith Park in Fairlawn for years with my siblings’ kids. Now we take our two kids there too and it’s definitely our favorite local park. They have a nice fenced area with the large playground equipment – large and small. Plus the tennis courts, basketball courts, and trail for walking.
