Archgate Park consists of 2 separate large athletic complexes housing baseball and soccer fields located south of Legacy off Archgate Drive.  The playground area consists of 2 large play structures ranging from ages 2-12 years, swingsets, modern covered pavilion with picnic tables, benches, basketball court, and port-a-potty restrooms located off the parking lot of the playing fields (the larger athletic complex portion has a bricked restroom facility but is not close to the playground). 

I must admit I had some trouble locating this jewel.  The signage for Archgate park is easy to see, however, if you turn into the first parking area you see, you'll only arrive at a huge, modern athletic complex.  You must continue past that first parking entrance, along the curved road, around some trees to reach the second, smaller complex where the playground is located.  Honestly I was frustrated with its location until I reached what seemed to be a wonderful oasis! The playground is surrounded by trees on one side and open field on another.  It's quietly tucked away so there's little concern for traffic or if you have a runner.  I felt completely confident being at this park with 4 kids 4 and under by myself!  The play areas are rated appropriately for the specified ages and there's a lot of neat/unique structures you don't find at your typical playground (see above faux rock features and climbing structures).  There are 3 schools nearby (elementary, middle, and high school) so many kids pass along the hike/bike trail to this wonderful park on their way home from school.  If you have younger kids and don't want a crowd, just head to this park for a nice morning or lunchtime playdate.  Obviously it will be crowded on game days and weekends.  Don't miss this pleasant oasis; it's a definite stop on your playdate list!
