7 Amazing Playgrounds In Ohio That Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again
There’s nothing like a carefully and kid-friendly designed playground to bring your inner child out to play. Here in Ohio, there are several uniquely designed playgrounds that stand out among the rest, and you owe it to your inner child–I mean, your children. You owe it to your children–to check them out. The following are just a few of what we consider to be the best not-your-average-playgrounds in Ohio:
1) Preston's H.O.P.E Playground Park (Beachwood)
Deemed "the largest fully accessible playground park in Northeast Ohio," this family favorite park is accessible to children of all needs and abilities, and features several designated age group areas, a play theater, an "Imagination Village" and a sand area. (This park is practically the King of Ohio Playgrounds.)
"Imagination Village" features kid-sized houses, stores and streets.

2) Knights Field Park Playground (Wooster)
In addition to all the regular playground amenities, this park in Wooster features a "Kiddy City" (pictured below) and a "Sprayground" for smaller children in the summer months.
3) Ravenna Community Playground (Chestnut Hills Park)
Where kids truly reign, this medieval themed park features several castle structures to play on in addition to other amenities such as sandboxes, a pirate ship, a beauty shop, a tower and a dungeon.
4) Truassic Park Playground (Akron Fossils and Science Center)
After you've explored the science center and learned all about fossils, a unique park awaits kids looking for a more adventurous playground experience. The playground at this educational center features a Dino-Kiddieland, obstacle courses and a 200 ft. long zip line for the really adventurous kids.
5) Playground of Possibilities (Bexley Park, Euclid)
Complete with a treehouse, elephant spring toys, a scarecrow playhouse and much more, the possibilities here are endless. (See what I did there?)
6) Millstone Creek Park (Westerville)
In addition to traditional playground equipment, this unique playground includes a nature area and futuristic equipment.
7) Kaleidoscope Playground (Wadsworth Memorial Park)
Aside from having a cool name, this playground is special for its wooden castle theme, multiple bridges, sandboxes and climbing walls.
