One of our favorite little places to play is Riderwood Hills Park in Baltimore County. It’s not a large playground, but its location next to The Shops at Kenilworth makes it super-convenient.

On this particular day, my son asked to bring a couple of trucks along. He experimented with driving the RC truck over different surfaces and sending vehicles down the slides. Physics!

Of course the kids like to play on the structures, but they always end up exploring the wild open spaces. I like playgrounds that have a bit of nature to explore too.

We were there in April, so the trees weren’t full. But in the summer there is nice shade, which is always on my criteria for a good playground. My daughter loves swings so that’s on her list.

The little park is adjacent to the mall parking lot so it’s easily walkable. The mall is a neat spot to watch a two-story waterfall, see a model train, or do a bit of shopping. I hear they are renovating and adding new stores too.

Last time we got a pizza at the mall and brought it out to the picnic tables to eat.

As a mom with the kids, I’m always on the lookout for spots where I can get several things done without dragging in and out of the car multiple times. That’s why I love spending a beautiful afternoon at this playground. The little lady is ready to explore it too.
