Cedar Creek Park
Playgrounds are located at Fields 5 and 6.
FIELD 6 PLAYGROUND is first when entering the park on the left. This is generally made for little kids and is fenced-in. It's faded but in good shape with swings.
FIELD 5 PLAYGROUND is the more popular one and much larger. There are four separate big kid and little kid play systems and swings with rubber ground. At the back there is a sandpit. Playground has almost no shade, but does have a large gazebo for moms to get out of the sun. Don't forget the sunscreen. Playground is large enough you can lose sight of the kids if you aren't paying attention. This is a popular spot so the parking lot and playground can be crowded on the weekends or prime times. There is an adjacent roller skate rink, great for letting the kids practice the bike, scooter, or skate. Restrooms are located next to this playground.
There are sports fields, the Jones Beach bike path entrance, tennis courts, and dog runs so the park can fill up during peak times.
GOOD FOR: Field 6 is great for letting the kids run without worry they can escape. Field 5 is great for socializing with moms and occupying the kids for a long time.
BEST FEATURE: Large with areas for all ages
YOU SHOULD KNOW: $10 fee for non-Nassau County residents on weekends after Memorial Day and weekdays after end-of-June. Field 5 playground gets super crowded during peak times and it can be hard to park. It's also next to a hidden archery area. I've never seen an arrow cross over to the playground but it's still a little bizarre.
WORTH A LONG DRIVE: Yes
