While in the Medina area the kids and I visited a number of the local parks. We always enjoy checking out different playgrounds. Our first stop was Sam Masi Park a small neighborhood park located off Gates Mills Blvd.
All About Sam Masi Park and Playground
Often parks that are tucked back into neighborhoods can be a challenge to find. At least I have trouble finding them. Imagine my surprise and appreciation when I noticed the easily recognizable signs pointing the way to the park.
Tip: You will start to see signs on 57 and they will lead you onto Shaker Drive and through the neighborhood to the park which is near the corner of Gates Mill Blvd and Pleasant Valley Drive
The park has a nice sized paved parking lot. The playground is located right next to the parking lot. There are slides, ladders, climbing structures and platforms.
There is also a good sized swing set with regular, infant and handicap accessible swings.
Located on the other end of the parking lot was a covered pavilion with picnic tables and grills. It would make for a nice spot for an outdoor party or get together. According to the Medina County website, the pavilion can hold 30-40 people.
The park also offers a number of sporting options, including:
A handicap accessible sports field. I had never seen an accessible field before and was really impressed with it. The entire infield was made of a rubber floor. I think it is great that the city has provided something that people of all abilities can use.
Next to the ball field is a basketball court.
And throughout the green space were a number of frisbee disc golf holes. I'm not sure how many holes there were, but I would guess at least 9.
Tips for Visiting Sam Masi Park
- The accessible park is great for toddlers and young children.
- There are a group of picnic tables located next to the playground. You can pack your own lunch or snacks to enjoy a picnic.
- Visitors report that the disc golf is a fun, challenging course
