Westminster Playground

Even though we miss the beach, we are glad to be back in D.C. and resume our local adventures.  Given that the Stead Park excrement issue seems to be a recurring problem (WHY DPR is allowing someone to use the park as a toilet, we just can't imagine), we are on the lookout for new, cool playgrounds to explore this summer.  Yesterday we checked out Westminster Playground -- a little gem of a park tucked away in the Westminster neighborhood -- and had a blast!  Although its not huge, it is shaded by lots of big ol' trees, has a small sprayground (which we were able to activate ourselves!), is filled with plenty of push toys and cars, and NO POOP.  I loved setting up a "car wash" with the friendly neighborhood kids and Cami loved playing in the water with her feet.  Mom loved the mural and mosaics.  I think this is going to be a new favorite of ours this summer!

What are YOUR favorite D.C. playgrounds?
