Playgrounds With Rubber Surfaces in Greenville

Looking for a park with a rubber playground surface near Greenville, SC?

Several years ago, I took my boys to a park to celebrate my sister’s birthday. My older two ran around happily as we ate cake and my sister opened presents. It was great, except for my baby who wasn’t walking yet. Every 5 seconds, I had to grab a piece of mulch out of his tight grasp before he used it as a teething ring. Mulch is also challenging for strollers or wagons. If only you knew what surface was under the playgrounds. Now you do!
