Northeast Neighborhood Park, Gainesville, North Florida FL

Description

Northeast Park is a neighborhood park in Gainesville with plenty of shade. There are super tall trees everywhere! A merry-go-round takes you back to the days when you were little. There are swings, a big kid playground, and a toddler playground, all set out with tons of space in between to run. Two of the swings are of the old-fashioned variety- a plank you can sit on that doesn't squish you from both sides. What a pleasant place to spend some time!
We didn't get bit by mosquitoes even though we were there two times during the summer at sunset. Maybe Gainesville has less of a mosquito problem than South Florida?
From 16th Ave, drive especially along 6th Terrace to get to 13th Ave. What a wonderland of huge trees hung with moss!
Another fantastic playground in Gainesville is Westside Park, which is loaded with way more equipment than Northeast Park and also has more kids playing.
