Description

Kids Kingdom Playground in Boynton Beach is a huge wooden castle playground painted grey. As you walk up to it, it looks like it's going to be so awesome with its red-trim castle windows. But the rest of it is a dull grey and there is very little shade at the main playing area. On one edge there are some trees and shade. The playground isn't being kept up very well; there are some broken parts and it's not that clean, especially at the edge with the shade. It's a shame because it could be a lot nicer with some TLC.
One part of the playground is really fun: a tire that you can climb down through to another tire suspended by chains. You can go underneath the playground, and the structure here looks like a ship, the Coquina, that was shipwrecked on the coast hundreds of years ago.
Schoolhouse Children's Museum, next door, is a fun and worthwhile place to visit, with a funny dairy exhibit where kids put ping-pong balls into the cow's mouth and then catch them with milk pails as they come out the udders!
The town of Boynton Beach feels a little down-and-out and Ocean Ave as you drive toward the beach doesn't have many cafes or cute shops, just a few liquor/bait shops. There is one cafe with outdoor seating that looked pleasant, Hurricane Alley.

Best community park I have ever seen. So much for the kids to explore and create imaginary games. Wonderful place to spend a couple of hours. Bring water and a snack, the kids will burn lots of energy and fun for adults to enjoy along with the kids.
