My kids grew up playing at Ringhaver Park, there is a nice playground/bathrooms, tennis courts, walking trails and boardwalk to the river. If you are in the area, stop in.

Great for toddlers and early walkers. It has age specific areas for all ages from toddlers/early walkers to school age kids. They also have soccer fields and baseball fields with a nature trail as well.
