I love the happenstance of the road. I was driving around Le Mars, Iowa, looking for a place for Mavis to do her thing on and found this awesome kid's playground. I have an eight-year-old nephew and I guess through him I have a greater appreciation for cool playgrounds. I used to live in Oak Park, Illinois, a place that has awesome playgrounds but also has the funding ability to switch out the equipment seemingly every five years. I always thought they were cool. However, after I saw this playground in Le Mars I realized how homogenized and kind of uninspired those Oak Park playgrounds really are.
The playground in Le Mars' Cleveland Park looks handmade, fun and friendly. If you're ever in Northwestern Iowa, check it out!
