I had never heard of Sugar Sand Park until last week, but am I glad I did. This awesome city park is hidden behind the brush on Military Trail. It has a small science museum that is really geared toward the school-age and preschool crowd with hands on activities for busy fingers and pop culture robot stars of Robbie Robot and R2D2. There are covered pavilions to have lunch at or hide from the raindrops. The best part of the park is by far the Science Playground. There is a 3 story tree house type structure that has all kinds of interesting places for children to play and imagine, such as a astronaut's launch chair, hall of mirror, airplane controls and a hidden sandbox. Outside of the treehouse are play areas that start with a toddler area that have a soft barrier (trees) and extend to other play areas for small school age and older school age as well. There is only one way in or out and there is a small central water play area with a place for parents/caretakers to sit and watch their charges. This area is shaded and misted with water spray to help the older folks keep cool. The science museum asks for a small donation (suggestion is $5.00) to assist with funding. There is a carousel that costs $1.00/ride and was unable to make change for a $20.00 bill. Bring some singles. If you need a place to let your little ones burn off some energy bring them here, just remember this is a public park and there is not a guard at the door so to speak and anyone could presumably stop by. That being said, my 6 & 4 year old grandsons had a great afternoon there. So glad we stopped by. We will be back.
