Welcome to our series: Lowcountry Parks & Playgrounds! Each article in this series focuses more on specific parks/playgrounds at locations all throughout the Lowcountry.
Next up, Saul Alexander Playground in Summerville!
Location: 615 Laurel Street
Hours: Dawn to Dusk
Parking: Free Street Parking
This playground, occasionally referred to as “Laurel Street Park” by locals, reopened in 2022 after major renovations. Saul Alexander Playground is now handicap accessible. Wide sidewalks wind around the playground and connect each play area. Children and parents love the rubber surface as it is easy to navigate and softens the impact of falls. This playground is a favorite because all ages, stages, and abilities can have lots of fun!
The fully fenced playground has two bathrooms and plenty of benches. There are many activities for kids and it keeps them busy! Some of our favorite features include the zip track, musical corner, and the play set with a huge sunshade. A large green area in the middle is perfect for a game of catch or tag. The swing options include a mommy and me swing! If you have visited this playground before renovations, you may be wondering what happened to the beloved purple dinosaur. Good news! It is nearby at James Allen Park.
