Greis Park Playground
This is a large, fenced-in playground and has a cozy neighborhood feel. The big and little sections are separated and there are two units per section. There are diverse climbing options that will certainly interest kids. There is a rock walk, twisted bars, and winding stairs. The equipment is colorful and clean.
The ground is rubber and well-maintained. The bathrooms are a bit far in the rec center which is a walk past the pool entrance. The people were friendly here.
The park is large and has lots of activities to offer. There are a lot of picnic tables in shade for a great lunch and break from the playgrounds.
BEST FEATURE: There are numerous slides and the big kid section has very tall slides that delighted my boys.
GOOD FOR: A nice sunny afternoon when you are looking to have a picnic and spend a long day in the park. Afterward you can treat the kids to homemade doughnuts at Doughology.
YOU SHOULD KNOW: The nearby pool and the sprayground are for Lynbrook residents but I heard they aren't strict about the letting kids into the spray area. The spray area is free (you don't have to pay for the pool to enter it).
WORTH A LONG DRIVE: Sure. It's large and my kids didn't want to leave.
