We enjoyed playing at Hughs Way Playground when we visited one evening and had the park all to ourselves. Although it’s a small park it is still a fun neighbourhood park for the kids. The road signs mapped onto the bike path would be fun for little kids to learn how to ride before venturing out on the real road.   The basket swings, regular swings, climbing frame and spinning pole and small slides kept the kids entertained. Whilst this is not a destination park, it’s still a fun place to visit with your family if you are in the Flat Bush neighbourhood and surrounding area.
