The Globe Magazine profiles 5 playgrounds worth the trip, including Wellesley’s Warren Park at the Rec Center (thanks to a reader for pointing this out to us). The writer gives the playground good grades for having enough foliage to keep the slides from burning kids’ butts, though he also wishes it was closer to a coffee shop.
Of course Warren Park will have a bit more competition in the near future as a playground goes up at Brown Field on Colburn Rd. and Sprague Field gets some playground improvements as part of the overhaul there. More on Wellesley’s playgrounds.
