Best local playground: Bayview Park

This hidden gem of a playground is located on Bayview Drive in Fort Lauderdale.  It is immaculate and offers something for just about everyone.  The playground has several different partially shaded climbing and sliding structures. Each structure is designed for different age levels and abilities, there is one for toddlers and the others are for varying abilities.  This playground is particularly nice because it has rubber flooring which can give a nice cushion to the inevitability of tumbling children.  The playground is partially fenced in along Bayview Drive and is blocked only by bushes on the side street so children must be supervised carefully on the parking lot side.
Bayview Park has one sheltered picnic area that is available for parties; however it must be reserved well in advance and it is very popular.  There are additional picnic tables, benches, basketball court, restrooms and tennis courts.  The park and playground are so well maintained that even the bathrooms are clean.
The baseball fields are a fabulous place for kids to run off some extra energy when they are not in use in use for organized games.   Parking can be difficult on peak hours like weekends or when school is out.  All in all this is a quiet, clean and beautiful park that is sure to be a favorite place to get a little fresh air, exercise and sunshine.
