20 Cool Playgrounds


East Dock Playground (Bayfield, Wis.)

East Dock Playground overlooks Lake Superior, but with all its awesome playground equipment, you may not notice the water views -- unless you're jumping off rocks into the water, of course. One of the coolest features of the playground is a climbing structure that's made from tires and is designed to look like a dragon. There's also a zip line, twisted slide, monkey bars and, if you're there at dusk, telescopes.

One corner of the grounds is designed with little kids (ages 2 to 5) in mind. It features a climbing structure built to look like a ship with a sandbox below it.
