Tex Spruiell Park



PARK REVIEW

This is a nice park in the middle of a neighborhood. It’s a fairly small park (9.8 acres), but it has a nice playground. The playground equipment is big, so there is a lot to do here. There is also an open field for playing sports, basketball goals, and a trail with exercise equipment along the path.

PARK HOURS – Closes at dusk

PLAYGROUND

There were 2 different sections of playground equipment in this one area.  I will describe each separately:

  • Largest Playground Structure
    • This playground equipment is best for kids ages 4 and up because the stairs are too high for the little kids to get up without a parent’s assistance.   
    • Playground Equipment
      • 2 Bumpy Plastic Slides (side-by-side)
      • 1 Curved Plastic Slide
      • Ladders
      • Spiral Pole
      • Bridge
      • Chain Ladder
      • Monkey Bars
      • Rock Wall
      • Climbing Aparatus
  • Smaller Playground Structure
    • This set is great for smaller kids because they can easily climb up onto it.  The stairs are low enough for them to climb up by themselves.  
    • Playground Equipment
      • Curved Plastic Slide
      • Climbing Ladders
      • Small Stairs
      • Rock Wall
  • Additional Playground Equipment
    • Swing Set
      • Placed in the middle of the playground
      • 2 Baby Swings
      • 2 Big Swings
    • Sand Box
      • Located to side of playground equipment.  The rest of the playground is wood chips.  
  • Playground Construction
    • Metal & Plastic Equipment
    • Located on wood chips
  • Shade Level
    • There is not much shade here, so bring the sunscreen.  There are a few trees around the edge of the playground that will cover the benches depending on what time of day you go.  There is no shade directly over the playground equipment. 
  • Seating
    • There are 3 benches (with some shade depending on the time of day that you go).  There are also 2 tables at the playground.
