Fantastic park & playground but easily crowded and overwhelming if you have multiple little ones. Best enjoyed while most kids are in school or on an overcast day. While the park is by far the best around it is often crowded and that takes away the joy quickly.

Vast array of people, children have the opportunity to climb rocks, pump water, crawl under a giant molehill, beat on jungle drums, spin sitting in a bowl, a disc, or a steel figure 8, climb rope structures, walk round on a self-rotating merry-go-round, or along on curving retaining walls in the shape of butterfly wings. Swings of different varieties... More

I have taken my grandkids here many times and they just love it! So much to do, so many different activities to excite and challenge them. Even climbing up the grass covered hill and rolling down is a rare treat in FL. Lots of trees make for many shady areas during the hot summer days. Picnic tables and other seating... More

From the butterfly garden, to the slides and ropes, you'll be pleased to find a relaxing and welcoming place just outside the heart of Lakeland.

Definitely a must-do whenever we're near Edgewood. The only two down sides are that it's always so packed (the sign of a good park!) and that the bathroom is gross.
