The first few below are in the downtown area. I’ve listed them, along with other fun things available at and around the downtown area parks.

 

Hamilton Park, 8th Street and Hamilton Place

Take a leisurely day at Hamilton Park with the whole family. The Splash Pad will help keep the kiddies cool or let them monkey around in the playground area. There is even a playground for the smaller children, which includes a little sprayer (since the Splash Pad can get a bit wild). Or just bring a blanket and sit in the shade, while the kids play on one of the beautiful lawn areas. There are even two dog runs, so don’t forget your furry baby. On Wednesdays you can enjoy all of these activities, plus the weekly farmer’s market. The park gets crowded, but it’s fun to picnic on the grass and try some of the yummy local food the market offers.
Newport Green, 700 Washington Boulevard

Newport Green isn’t actually a city park. The sprinklers are supposed to shut down around 6pm and the park itself closes at dusk. This unique little park, not only offers a fun sprinkler area, it also has a large and modern playground — complete with something for kids of all ages. This park also boasts a small carousel that’s a huge hit with the younger kids. A small sandy beach with umbrellas completes this downtown oasis. Parking can be an issue, so make sure to follow the rules posted on signs along the streets. Also, remember pets are not allowed at Newport Green.

Jones Park, 8th Street and Brunswick Street

This small park has a cute sprinkler area in the playground. A whale, dolphin and seal squirt water and kids have an area to run around and play while cooling off. The playground is right there, so kids can run from one to the other, plus the entire area is gated. A small, pretty community garden project is in the corner of the area. The park also offers a skate park, for those who love to ride their scooters on ramps! You can walk around the entire park and it’s usually a nice quiet walk. Feel free to bring dogs! This park is within walking distance of the bigger Hamilton Park, so if you feel like hitting two in one day, it can easily be done.
