POTSDAM NY PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS
lawrence avenue elementary
Lawrence Avenue elementary school playground, potsdam
One of the most creative local playgrounds that you will find. And its not just for school aged kids or children attending Lawrence Avenue Elementary School. During out of school hours the playground is open to all in the community, with the usual caveats about parental supervision. It is modern and imaginative, involves so many different ways to climb, play and explore that its hard to beat. There are many separate structures, including two main structures for younger and older children. The playground also features bears, a "hollowed out tree" that can be climbed upon and into to match the varying clambering abilities of school aged children, as well as assorted animals to observe elsewhere throughout. The playground has slides, climbing walls, swings, monkey bars, stepping stones, ladders, spinners and much else to try your kids strength, coordination and resistance to motion-sickness on. Sold! Friday after school times seems a very popular time to hang out here for moms, dads and children, so if you want to meet other parents in a casual setting...this might be the place.
