Rivercrest Park

Follow my blog with Bloglovin One of my favorite things (I have a lot of favorite things...) about living way up north in Cali is our great weather. While most of the country hates February for it's bitter cold, my children played outside in shorts.  On these almost Spring days, I like to take the kids to explore the Redding area parks. We still do this, but I must admit we did it a lot more when my kids were smaller.

We really like Rivercrest Park. This park is great because it has so many things to offer. For small children it has a play structure made for little ones. Slides that are just their size and small steps so they can get up and down on their own.  And for the big kids it has a large basketball court, huge grassy area and a large play structure. All ages love the swings.  Moms love that there is a huge covered area with lots of tables and shade.

I am really enjoying these pics of my children when they were a bit smaller.  We have been back to the park since this many times, but things haven't changed much. It's still the same great park.
