Calling all moms, your kids will love this new play area in Rockford.

Every time I see a new play area or splash pad I get so jealous. I know I'm an old lady over here... but when I was younger, our parks will filled with sand of worse, wood chips that got caught in your socks and made your legs itch.

Kids these days get amazing play areas like this new one in Sinnissippi.

 

Not only are there no wood chips... but there's also so much to do for those little ones who need to burn some energy this summer.

Great job, Rockford Park District!
