Possibility Playground- Port Washington

OK- I know this blog is usually about parks in Milwaukee County, but this park is so amazing and fun that I have to include it.  It's an easy drive  north of Milwaukee.  Possibility Playground is a creative playground built onto the top of a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan and it's in Port Washington, WI at Upper Lake Park.  If you click on the link above, it will give you detailed directions from the Milwaukee area.

I heard about it because one of the 'founding mothers' is a friend of mine.  We both have kids with down syndrome.  It is designed with the abilities of all kids in mind.  If you want to relax while the kids play, this is a great place because it is completely enclosed by a fence with only one entrance/exit.  They can't run away from you!  Of course, the play structures are so much fun and can support an adult, so I'd encourage you to do some playing of your own too.  Look at the details, because there are little features like musical toys along the fences.  There is a restroom with changing area too.

There are some spectacular views from the bluff, but be careful about letting little kids near the edge.  And while you're in the area, there are 2 cool lighthouses in Port Washington that are pretty interesting, if you like that kind of thing.  One is a museum and the other is at the breakwater in the harbor.  You can pack a picnic lunch and make this an awesome day trip.
