Word on the Street

Deep within Redwood City, between El Camino and Alameda de las Pulgas , lies Red Morton Park.   It's huge, with numerous soccer fields, baseball fields, tennis courts, basketballs courts, and broad expanses of green for just pure running around.  There's a skate park, a pool, an outdoor exercise area, a community center, and a nice little playground.  The playground is on sand, which can get hot, and there is no shade over the immediate play area, so it can get very hot. There is shade just off of the sand lot, though, on a low rise under some trees between the playground and  a huge open field where many people picnic or run dogs.  It's divided into three zones: a big jungle gym, a tot jungle gym, and a swing set. The jungle gyms are middling in elaborateness: a little short on slides. The swing set is the standard two-by-two regular swings and safety swings.What I don't like about this park is what I don't like about many parks: too exposed to the sun in the areas where the kids are going to be spending the majority of their time: the jungle gyms.On the plus side, the park serves as a central focus for the community, and the community really comes out to enjoy it which makes it a great place to people watch or to actually go out and meet new people.I also like the the ice cream truck stops by in the afternoon on the weekends. Smart ice cream man.
