One of my family’s favorite Akron, Ohio playgrounds and parks is Hardesty Park located at 1615 West Market Street in West Akron. Hardesty Park is a large spacious park surrounded by a neighborhood and borders West Market Street and the new West Market Street Station. After we visited our favorite new restaurant, Piada Italian Street Food we stopped by to play at the park!
This playground is in excellent condition, the City of Akron is really taking good care of the playground. The new mulch was super thick, making the whole playground even safer. There are many options for play on the large main playset including monkey bars, climbing structures, teeter totter, trapeze rings, swinging bridge, and more. There is also a smaller play structure for little ones.
Fun and exercise is important to kids of all ages. When kids are playing at playgrounds like this one, they don’t know that they are exercising. There are so many playgrounds and parks in the Akron, Ohio area that there is no excuse to not get outside, explore, have fun, and get a little exercise.
