Right in the middle of a wooded neighborhood lies Hudson’s own Middleton Park. The park is home to a basketball court, baseball field, walking trail, pavilion, grills and playground. This smaller scale park fits a lot of fun into just nine acres.
The gravel parking lot is compact, but it never seems to be full when we visit. A port-a-potty sits in the parking lot, and it is the park’s only bathroom. A partially gravel, partially paved pathway winds through the basketball court and baseball field areas, leading toward the playground.
Helpful Tip: It is a bit of a walk from the parking lot to the playground, so be sure to bring your stroller or wagon if needed.
The Playground at Middleton Park
Although the actual park is fairly small, there is still a wide variety of newer play equipment. There are two larger play sets for bigger kids, as well as two smaller sets for the little ones.
There is also a stand-alone big slide, a merry-go-round and two separate sets of swings. It is a great park to keep different age groups busy without having to run around a huge space.
One of our favorite aspects of Middleton Park is that it is very rarely crowded. Our playgroup visits and we are often the only ones there, which offers a unique experience for the kids. It’s almost like having a large playground right in your own backyard.
