    Across from Inman Park Middle School, JOHN HOWELL PARK features two playgrounds: one for tots and one for school-age kids. Though neither playground is particularly large, both age groups can find plenty to amuse themselves. Older kids can run across a wobbly bridge and crawl through tubes under much-coveted shade. The toddler set can run amok in a sandbox, experience bouncy rocking-horse-like rides, and find a fire engine suitable for climbing on, under and through. Best of all, high-tech rubberized flooring covers the entire playground, so if your kids fall you won’t feel as guilty. less...

But most of all, I remember being happy. less...
