Follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Wizard of Oz-themed playground! The playground design is a literary dream as it tells the story of L. Frank Baum’s “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” from Auntie Em and Uncle Henry’s Kansas farm to the poppy field, Emerald City and Dorothy’s attempt to get home via hot air balloon. Even more, Dorothy’s ruby slippers were adapted to be playground slides! Kids of all ages and abilities will use their imaginations as they explore this destination playground, and the surrounding park.
Watkins Regional Park Upper Marlboro, MD is not only home to the Wizard of Oz themed playground, it also provides space to explore nature, camping sites, the Old Maryland Farm, a Nature Center, Miniature Golf, picnic areas, a Carousel, and a Miniature Train. Pack a lunch and plan to play and explore all day.
