On Monday we went to Miracle Park with Scarlet and Skyler with Korra! Miracle Park is an accessible playground and park. They have an accessible baseball field, plus a lot of accessible play equipment in the playground area.
When we arrived we were shocked to see how packed it was! There were kids EVERYWHERE! Luckily every single kid who wanted to pet the dogs asked before petting, and we were able to explain that the dogs were working. They all understood and didn’t bother us again. It was really nice that they were all so respectful!
At first we just wanted to sit and observe, so we found a bench to hang out on.
Then we started to explore the play equipment. There were these orange chairs that spun around in circles, so I tried those out!
We also found a green and yellow platform that went around in a circle. It was flush with the ground so Scarlet could ride their wheelchair right onto the platform, and there was room for me to sit on the seat next to them, too! A little boy was very excited to push us around, though he wasn’t quite strong enough LOL! So Skyler with Korra stepped in to help push us. It was fun!
I also got to swing on a big flat swing, and Alice loved it! I held her in my arms for most of the playground stuff, though she did seem to find the soft cushy floor a bit confusing when she did walk on it LOL!
It didn’t take too long before all the kids became overwhelming, so we walked to the other end of the park. There was a guy skateboarding there, and he helped us train the dogs to ignore skateboards. He was very very nice, and we did some good training.
Next we walked around the very edge of the park to the far entrance.
We circled around and found a sensory area with tubes you could talk into, pipes to bang on, and so on. That was fun, but we were all pretty tired by that point, so we decided to head to Starbucks.
I have the Starbucks app so I don’t have to stand in line to order. I just place my order in the app and then wait for my drink to be ready!
We then sat outside for a while, drinking our coffee and chatting. It was great fun! Brad and I were having fun making funny facial expressions at each other, and he got some of that on camera.
Scarlet got tired, so we took them home. Then Skyler and Korra came over to our place! We hung out in our back yard, and Korra had a great time rubbing herself all over the pine needles in our yard! Unfortunately Brad didn’t get any pictures of this part of our hangout.
We had a great time! I like the park, but I definitely won’t go back in an afternoon. I’ll only go super early in the morning when there aren’t loads of kids around.
In the pictures, I am wearing purple, pink, and blue leggings and a grey top with my hair in pigtails. Alice is a sable and white Japanese Chin with a purple vest. Scarlet is wearing a daisy shirt and using a purple power wheelchair. Skyler is wearing black leggings and a black sweatshirt. Korra is a sable standard poodle wearing black boots! Brad is wearing yellow pants, a black blazer, a yellow tie, and a white hat with blue palm trees on it.
I have to say, until I saw the orange chair in the background of another picture, I was super confused as to how the chair was held up- it looked like it was floating! Apparently, your leg was hiding the post, lol.
