What makes it special or worth visiting?

Paulyground is a colorful, unique playground nestled in beautiful Alpine Park. There are several pieces of playground equipment here that we haven’t seen anywhere else including a merry-go-round that seats 10 kids, spinning cups that kids can sit in, very low hanging (2-4 inches off the ground) rubber swings, and hanging seats in the climbing-themed bigger kid play structure. There are many mature trees around the playground that provide a good amount of shade. Paulyground is a great place for kids of all ages; even babies have a place to play and rubber flooring to keep them safe! Bring your swimsuits and check out Alpine Pool, which shares a parking lot with Paulyground, while you’re there.

If you go, you may want to bring:

  • Swimming suits and towels – Alpine Pool is located next to the playground
  • Basketballs – There are basketball hoops nearby
