There are many excellent Parks with Playgrounds in Howard County, MD and as the Mother of a pre-school aged child I enjoy the great variety of options available.Â One of our personal favorites is Meadowbrook Park and Playground in Ellicott City.
Hidden away behind Long Gate Shopping Center you will find it located at the end of Route 100 just before the road meets Rt 29 (Exit 1) on Meadowbrook Road.
This 77-acre park features three baseball fields; an open-play area; a large playground for all abilities; two tennis courts; two basketball courts; two picnic pavilions; and approximately 2.3 miles of sidewalks and pathways, parking, landscape, and restroom facilities
The playground area is a well designed maze of climbing frames, walkways, slides, tubes and monkey bars. It's mostly under a roof and has many different levels. It is built for children of all ages, although my almost 5 year old seems to enjoy it more the older he gets. The speed of their fun can be nerve wracking, but the squeals of joy are priceless. The base of the playground is like a huge rubber mat, which makes for a softer landing than cement. There are no traditional swings, but there is a mini zip line.
