I was wondering where the best playground(s) in or around Fuquay is - I have an 18 month old, so I prefer one that has toddler swings, small slides, etc. Holly Springs would be close enough, too.

Thanks!

While it doesn't have swings, Crowder Park is one of the better parks in southern Wake. It has a huge main playground + 2 smaller ones in other areas of the park. There is also a pond with a boardwalk over it. Lots of turtles and ducks to see.

Lake Wheeler has a small playground with swings, but no toddler swings.

Cary's Kids Together park is probably the best for toddler swings. A very well designed park with something for kids of all ages. . . . and very nice landscaping too.

I went to a park in Garner yesterday -- across from historic downtown Garner and next to the senior center -- that had some swings, but again no toddler swings.

Womble Park in Holly Springs has swings and an ok toddler area. I have a 19 month old and he likes
to climb there.

If you don't mind a bit of a drive, Kids Together off of Cary Pkway is our absolute favorite. Tons of sand & water play, lots of structures, great for all ages. Kelley Road Park in Apex is our second favorite. It's got 2 seperate areas, one for bigger kids and one for smaller kids. Lots to climb, sand play, and swings as well.

I had never heard of Kids Together - just googled it, and it looks awesome, even though it's not exactly in Fuquay... I think we'll head over there this weekend. Thanks!!

Check out Middle Creek park off Optimist Farm rd on the left just before West Lake rd. They have toddler swings, a toddler climbing structure with slides a sand area with two of those ride on bouncy things in the sand and a grassy area to run around on.

There's a playground behind Club Worx on Honeycutt road which is really nice!
Lake Benson in Garner redid their playground and it's super cool now and has swings!

The park and nature area at Harris Lake park is beautiful...we live in Holly Springs and it is our favorite...and usually not too crowded. I think it has some toddler swings? A little drive but worth it to us...great for a picnic.
