Carver Park in Ocala, FL: A low-key playground that will entertain your kiddo (for at least an hour).
My preschooler and I released our energy at the large, open field (great for tag and soccer) and the playground. (Hey, I love slides, too!)
My kiddo spent the bulk of his time at the Carver Park playground that features
- A small play structure featuring a partial canopy
- A ladder with lily pad steps
- A steering wheel
- A slide
- A metal climbing ladder
- Wide, safe steps with rails
- A kid’s basketball hoop
- A small spinning carousel
- Looped monkey bars
- Another slide
- A swing set is equipped with a sitting swing, one bucket swing, and two traditional swings.
- *Note one of the traditional swings was broken when we were there.
The playground rests on mulch on an open space within a small, residential neighborhood, so there isn’t much shade.
Luckily, this wasn’t a problem since we visited Carver Park on a cloudy morning.
My 3-year-old enjoyed the sitting swing and the small play structure the most.
Behind the playground is a full-court basketball court, and surrounding the park, you’ll find recycling and trash bins.
One thing we did notice was there wasn’t a lot of seating. There were no benches or picnic tables, not even under the pavilion.
Carver Park in Ocala, FL is a great place to enjoy a picnic lunch under one of the trees at the park (remember a blanket). Kids also enjoy the playground that has all the basics young children need.
It’s also conveniently close to Legacy Park that has a half-mile walking trail.
Overall, Carver Park was an unexpected Ocala find that entertained my 3-year old for an hour.
