While we were in San Diego in April, you may remember that we took a morning and spent it at the Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. As we pulled into the parking lot that morning, the kids couldn’t help but notice a really nice playground off in the distance. Chris and I promised we’d head over there after the museum because we both know how much they love playing at the playground.
The Pepper Grove Playground is suitable for kids of all ages. It is separated into two main areas. The side designed for children younger than five has a giant sandbox, cushioned floors, slides and swings. The other side, designed for kids five and older, offers a large jungle gym, faux zip line and fun things to spin on.
As much as they loved playing on the playground, I am fairly certain that they liked this better:
We live on a main road, so we don’t see much of the ice cream truck where we live.
Before we left, I snapped a few pictures of the park surrounding the playground because it was so pretty. It definitely made me wish that I lived closer because I could see myself spending a lot of time there.
Off to the side of the playground, there were many picnic tables (some of them were painted like the one we sat at) and there was plenty of room for a blanket on the ground to have a picnic on!
