At intermission of Opera in the Heights, we made our way to The Ark Park right next door.
At first I thought we were sneaking on to the church's playground (and I was hoping they would understand that my kids could only handle so much sitting and singing at one time), but when I saw the sign and the internet, I realized that it is open to all and I could stop tip toeing and start playing.
The Ark Park is part of Heights Christian Church and is a big wooden structure. There is a slide and ladder and bridge... but it might just be best for imaginative play.
After the show, we came back and the big kids had a game of tag and then hide-and-seek and the little ones set up their "restaurant" in the bottom of the boat.
The park is open daily, 9:00am until 6:00pm (or dark). There are no restrooms, but you are on Heights Boulevard near a lot of shops and restaurants.
