This walking trail includes two different playgrounds to stop for some fun: one near the beginning of the walk and one at the end.
Park the car at Jaycee Gardens Park and follow the path up past the play equipment and across the bridge to Rennie Park. Jaycee Gardens is lovely and leafy, which is beautiful to see in Fall and provides great shade in Summer.
Once you arrive at Rennie Park, follow the path down to the beach front and Lakeside Park. There is a new playground in Lakeside park, which was installed in 2017, and there is fun equipment suitable for little and big kids.
