2. Fryer Park (UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN 2022!!)
- 3899 Orders Rd, Grove City, OH 43123
Fryer Park will be closed for remodeling in 2022!
Fryer Park is a unique playground because of it’s space theme! The sun, moon and planets are represented in this park that also has a sand pit, swings and This park is next to the Grove City YMCA and Century Village. Rotary Lake is close by too, with catch and release fishing! There is also a nice walking path and sledding hill!
A splash pad was recently added to the park and it also has a space theme!
This playground in Grove City is ideal for toddlers. It’s a rather flat playground, which is great for kids who aren’t quite ready for climbing and tall slides. There is a small climbing area better for older kids, but overall, I would recommend this playground for younger kids.
