There are 5 playgrounds within a mile of our home, which would be nice if they weren’t all identical, only varying in state of disrepair. You know the one. It must make up 99% of the playgrounds on the island. It bores me to tears. Still, there are a handful of good playgrounds. My favorite is in Nuuanu Valley Park right next to Queen Emma’s summer palace. The structure is a little different than the standard and they actually have swings – a rare treat. Even better, the park is landscaped with fabulously giant banyan and monkey pod trees. These beauties shade the whole park, which extends into a grassy hill and field behind the play structure. Play at the playground and then head into the park to explore (although it can get buggy back there). Afterwards, enjoy a nice picnic lunch at one of the tables or under a giant tree. Now that’s a good playground.
Do you know of any good playground? I’d love to hear about them! Please leave a comment.
