COOL FACTOR: This playground offers just about everything for kids 2-12 with shady seating and great parent viewing areas. This park is a must try!
In Gwinnett County, we are truly spoiled! We have so many wonderful parks to visit. Comparing many factors, I think Bunten Road Park has almost everything we look for in a playground:
AGES: Includes play options for kids 2-12. It has some of the tallest slides we’ve seen in our area.
This playground also includes a separate play structure for early walkers – This portion is thoughtfully, separated yet still in the main playground area. You are close enough to keep an eye on the larger structures, at the same time.
BATHROOMS: Located in the building next door
CONTAINMENT: Outside of the two main exits, they are relatively contained “down” in the playground area.
EATING: You can set up a small picnic on the sometimes-shady steps. You can also have a full-picnic or birthday party in the central pavilion, or the separate barn-type covered picnic area
FUN FACTOR: This playground was recently re-opened with the very latest in playground equipment. There are two swing areas, seven slides, several climbers, some spinners, and equipment resembling a spaceship, pirate ship and castle.
SHADE: The playground area is NOT covered but there are several Shady Sitting/Eating Areas! (sitting steps, a central pavilion (2 tables) and barn-type pavilion just outside of playground area(1 table))
PARENT VIEW: There is a centrally-located pavilion with view of most of the playground (2 covered picnic tables)
SAFETY: You enter the playground from a wooden walkway or a wooded trail. There are no cars moving next to the playground.
SEATING: Plenty of seating around one side that is shaded, much of the day. Covered picnic tables in the center and on the side.
