Jaycee Park in Pickens

About a month ago, I was working on a Park Guide for Kidding Around Greenville and stumbled upon Jaycee Park in Pickens, SC. I was by myself the morning I found it. After taking the photos, I hopped in my car, grabbed the boys from school and drove all the way back to let them play. If that’s not a review in and of itself, I don’t know what is.

IMG_2533You can’t tell from this picture, but just behind this bench is a creek. There’s a sandbar and the water is clear. You know what that means…

IMG_2570You guessed it! I probably don’t have to tell you that we had to DRAG the kids away from this spot. You might wanna keep it a secret until you’re done with the playground facilities. It’s also a good idea to carry extra clothes, towels and water shoes in the car. Believe me,  you’ll need them.

Jaycee Park is definitely on our Summer Adventure list!
