Gum Springs Playground Features

This playground is done in Lincoln Log or Wild West fashion. Which my kids just loved having a different style. Using steps, you can easily get to the shorter double slide or go a little further and get to the twisty slide. This playground is fun with having four slides on each corner. There is also a solid bridge that connects to the other corner where there is a tunnel slide and wavy slide. There is also a spiral fireman pole and ladders and windows to keep watch out of and little picket fences to find behind. One of the shelters is nearish the playground too.
