I'm not sure you'd want your kids swimming in that lake with the amount of fertilizer/chemical run off that I'm sure is in it. I wouldn't eat fish out of there either though plenty of people seem to eat catfish from there.

Interesting; one reason I always liked it is that it is fenced almost all the way around and not all that large so I could keep kids in sight or know where they were when they popped out of sight and move to where I could see them while still always keeping the way out in sight also. I have 4 kids, so containment was an appealing feature.

KidsTowne/Kelly Rd. park, Apex: My kids love this one, they call it Castle Park. I find it's probably the easiest to supervise kids there. Con - No shade at all. That makes it miserable in the pit of summer, but it's our go to from Oct. to May.

Bond has shade but gets very crowded on weekends...BUT...it's the family friendly Triangle. ALL of the parks are crowded on weekends.

Pullen: A fun place to tag team, exhausting on your own with the younger ones. Not our every week play date place, but a nice park to hit every now and then.

Kid's Together: The kids like it. I find I have to keep schlepping from the swingy part to the climby part. Both parts are easily supervisable, if your kids will stay in one part or the other. Mine don't.
