Back to Magical Bridge Playground
Uploaded: Mar 24, 2021
Earlier this month our family had a wonderful time playing at Magical Bridge Playground. This was our first time visiting the playground since Covid and we cannot wait to return. I was a bit hesitant to visit Magical Bridge with the restrictions in place
. I assumed the wait would be very long, that the 30 minute time limit would be too short, and that it would still feel crowded and hard to stay socially distant; however, I was pleasantly surprised. The volunteers ran everything very smoothly.
As we entered, we were told there would be about a 10 minute wait. When we reached the line another volunteer thanked everyone for waiting patiently. Once it was our turn to play, the playground felt almost empty. With only 55 people, our kids were amazed at all they could do. No wait for the slides. No wait for the swings or the merry-go-round. Everyone was great about wearing masks and social distancing. As expected, it was hard to leave after only 30 minutes, but after we left our kids enjoyed playing at all of the other playgrounds at Mitchell Park.
We hope to go back to Magical Bridge Playground soon. Thank you Magical Bridge Playground volunteers for helping keep this playground open and safe for everyone to enjoy.
