Team Zuhl took a detour this week and visited Ponderosa Farm Park on Cooper Avenue in Scotch Plains. The ribbon cutting was last week and it's all the buzz in the neighborhood, and Team Zuhl likes to be where the action is, so off we went.
There's plenty of parking, trees for shade, picnic tables abound, and soccer/baseball/softball fields. But the real attraction is the water park and playground.
The climbing equipment and ropes and slides are all on top of thick foam that didn't get warm for little feet in the sun. There's plenty to keep lots of kids busy.
But the biggest attraction was the water feature. It was a hot day here in NJ, and kids were frolicking in the fountains. I tell you, it wouldn't have been hard to convince me to take my shoes off and join them for a minute or two. Or three :)
