Southern Community Playground, Southern Village, North Carolina NC


Southern Community Playground is an awesome playground! Big kids will love it too! There are many different structures to play on, and there's a little hill where kids can run up and down or search for caterpillars. There is pretty landscaping including blossoming trees and little boulders, but not much shade. 
After playing, you can walk the bike path to Southern Village's Market Street for a gelato at La Vita Dolce or a slice of pizza at Pazzo. Sometimes there are events at the Green here, such as movie nights or family games night, and some Wednesday evenings there is live music outside on the patio at La Vita Dolce.
The bike path that starts at Southern Community Park leads all the way to Culbreth Road. Take the left fork when you're almost at Culbreth Road to walk the tunnel under the road and connect with the Morgan Creek bike path. Walking to the right leads to Merritt's Pasture, a nice field and pond. Walking to the left leads to the longest path. This is a 45 minute 2.2 mile walk one way, from Southern Community Park to Morgan Creek trailhead parking.
