Talk about a unique park! Faust Park has so much to offer; a large playground, the Butterfly House, an indoor carousel, historic buildings to explore and reservable picnic sites.
The playground area is huge! There is a small toddler playground with a small wave slide and two tunnel slides. Additionally, there are a few interactive items for the littlest ones to play with (steering wheel, convex mirror, voice changer, etc)
The larger playground has numerous slides (a closed tunnel slide, open chute slides, a metal slide), a bridge, steering wheels, monkey bars, climbing nets and various ladders all perfect for wearing out your little one. 🙂
The flooring for both playgrounds is rubber flooring. There is some dirt and mulch under the trees near the playground.
The swing set includes belt swings, bucket swings and a mommy and me swing.
There are year round bathrooms available near the playground and reservable pavilion.
We really liked this park and would give it a 5 star rating! The only downside for me is the large playground has so many openings that I was nervous my 18 month old would wander off the open sides.
Future blog posts will review the Butterfly House and the Carousel.
