I recently checked out the Balboa Lake playground that recently was finished and it is awesome. We have gone a few times already in the last week. I find myself there really early but my kids are up early so it doesn't much matter. It can get crowded, but between 8-9 when we are there it is pretty much us. But it had fun stuff for the kids to do. It has drums and a swaying boat and rolling slides and ropes to climb on and tons and tons more. So this is my push for this playground it is really fun. Here are some pics of my kids enjoying it.
