Crush It At This Playground: Grape Day Park - Escondido



Crushing it at the playground!! 😂 🍇 Grape Day Park sure lives up to its name! You can even slide right through this bunch of grapes.✨ 🍇


This is a pretty big playground with lots of other fun climbing structures and swings behind this grapevine. (Swipe to see.) It's a registered landmark and home to the old train station 🚂 with historic buildings lining the edge of this park, like Escondido’s first library 📚 , an 1890’s Victorian house, barn & blacksmith shop, even an old tractor to climb on. 🚜
