"Possibly my kid's favorite place in the world."
"...to construct sculptures, a bench, whatever you wanted with scrap wood..."
"Meant for older kids, at least 7 years and up, this is what I witnessed..."

Mad Max + Sanford & Son + Survivor + those-junk-sculpture-things-that-used-to-line-the-­Bay-when-you-were-driving-to-the-Bay-Bridge-in-­the-1970s + a mild Lord of the Flies = Adventure Playground. Meant for older kids, at least 7 years and up, this is what I witnessed: * Kids running around with saws (!!!) * A kid who dropped a hammer from a treehouse - luckily no one was below * A young boy dismantling a play structure with a hammer * A girl who face planted in a dirt mound after using the zipline However on the other side I saw: * No electronics! No one glued to their DS, Nintendo or anything. * Lots of running, swinging, climbing, exploring * Kids handling tools for the first time, learning how to work with wood * Paint! Kids encouraged to paint anything they wanted; grafitti as art * Working cooperatively with other kids, trying to construct sculptures, a bench, whatever you wanted with scrap wood * Freedom to be kids - no one telling them NOT to do something There are adults who do supervise this playground, but parent supervision is a must. Not the helicopter type who squirts hand sanitation gel every five seconds on their kids hands, but a parent who will kindly instruct a child how to hold a saw so they don't lose any digits. Located next to the marina, you get a lovely view of the bay and the windsurfers. Loved the outdoor pianos and the fact that my daughter was the rogue Hello Kitty grafitti artist extraordinaire for the afternoon!

Possibly my kid's favorite place in the world. Only downside is when we have to leave.
