Where: Staring Lake Park, Eden Prairie (14800 Pioneer Trail, Eden Prairie, MN 55347)
Age of Bap Boy: 2.5
Review: Somehow, my brain remembered that Staring Lake Park's Playground in Eden Prairie is pretty nice. So, we made our way to the south west 'burbs and enjoyed a great time with our BB. (Reminder, BB is our "Bap Boy," as in our son.) Everything BB could want was there: swings, springy toddler equipment, sand, and slides. Bonus for this time 'round was a little girl who really liked BB, and BB really liked her. He even helped her put her shoes on (uhhh, so cute).
Anyway, parents and aunties, uncles, guardians, grandparents, friends, caregivers, teachers, etc, please note: The big blue slides are the best part. At least, in our case they were. BB walked up the mini brick steps that aren't really the steps at LEAST 15 times. I'm not joking. The kid got some serious stair climbing exercise in for the day. He slept very well that night, if I recall correctly. I'm making no guarantees that your toddler will do the same, but this aspect alone was a major hit for BB, and in turn, made it so he fell asleep that evening within 1 minute. Win-win! Yay!
Thanks, lush Eden Prairie for having such nice parks...you may be a bougie suburb, but I do like your free parks! Oh, yeah!
