When Briana was just a few months old I started introducing her to the outdoors and the sounds of nature. When she became more alert I was so eager to take her to parks and introduce her to more. At 6 months I introduced Briana to a swing for the first time. I knew she would love the park. It took a few seconds, but she quickly found out how fun swings can be. After that, we found that one of our favorite parks had some cool mommy-n-me baby swings and we loved that it was a quiet and baby–friendly parks.
Not every park is perfect for babies or even toddlers, especially during the Summer. It can get hard to find nice parks for the kiddos. So, A couple months back Briana and I set out to find our favorite baby-friendly parks. These parks are perfect for kids about 6 – 24 months old. These are great spots and we are happy to share them with you all.
Coral Pine Park
I think the thing I love the most about this park is the mommy-n-me swings. I’m not sure if that’s what they are called, but I love them. It’s perfect because I can use the baby swing for Briana and get some swinging in myself as well. The swings at this park are covered and that’s great for the summer heat. It provides a good shade in the summer months. This park isn’t too crowded, but I usually take her in the early morning or around sunset for better weather. The play set at this park is great as well it has a small slide I can practice with Briana on and a larger one for older kids that already know how to walk and move around on their own.
This park is very quiet and situated on right off Kendall Drive. It has a huge play area for kids along with fun colorful structures for kids to play on. It also has a small workout area for adults. I like this park because it’s close to home and it has baby swings. This park has no covering from the sun, but it has lots of trees and shaded areas, and a great walking path. I usually take Briana here just for the swings right now and when it’s a cloudier day. I get to let her enjoy the outdoors, but if it looks like it will rain, I can get her home quickly.
Evelyn Greer Park
This park has such an awesome vibe. It’s situated in a peaceful area of Pinecrest. It’s normally busy with lots of kids. You may have to wait a little while for baby swings, but there are other things to do as well. It has two separate play sets one for toddlers, and one for older kids. I think its great that it has both the swings and the play sets covered for shade, so you can stand the heat a little longer. Briana had a great time at this park, and I got to put her on the little dino seesaw, and she absolutely loved it.
Flagler Grove Park
This park is more of a field with a very tiny play set off to the side. I added this one to the list of baby-friendly parks because it’s perfect for beginner movers. It has just a few little steps and a small slide. It’s the perfect little place to take your little one to try out new movements and confidence. It helps with climbing up and down and getting confident in their balance and movements. Briana is a year old now and I wanted to find somewhere she could be more confident to move, and it was easy for me to supervise her.
Dante Fascell Park
So, this park has a little bit of everything and it’s really the perfect park to spend the day with the family. It has tennis courts, walking/running path, workout area, shaded picnic area, and a big playset and swing set. Most weekends you will find it very packed because there are parties going on. Weeks in the summer will be about the same because of camps and such. It’s worth it to try it out. The baby swings in this park are not shaded or under any trees so going at sunset will probably be best. If you go during the day then be sure to put extra sunscreen on you and the little one.
