Kids-at-Play: Find a Playground!


‘Tis the season to get out and about!

One of our favorite Kids-at-Play Spots is the playground at the Old Gregg School Community Center. If you’ve never pulled off of Route 45 into “Spring Mills Proper”, you may not know that this little gem is tucked right down the hill.




When we visited the playground the other day, I couldn’t believe what I saw when I sat down on the bench. This quote:


This was the little bit of wisdom that got me through the winter! Seeing it at the dawn of spring – on the other side of some long, sick, cold days – was an unexpected gift.

What’s your favorite Penns Valley playground? We could use a few recommendations. After all, we’ve got 3 kiddos with enough energy to keep every Penns Valley swing swinging ’til November…

 Enjoy your home,

    There is now a park at the Millheim borough building where the library is located. Also Coburn has a nice park, but be sure to take extra clothes because the kids always find Elk Creek right behind the park where it meets Penns Creek.

    Such a great spot! Also if you bring bread you can walk across the street and feed the duck as we used to do with our children. I can remember when they were raising money for that park, thanks Marcie Lynch, Spring Mills PTA and Spring Mills community.

      Ah! Bread for the ducks! A great idea… we’ll stash some in the car the next time we’re heading down Route 45. Yes, thank you to all of the community members who supported that park; it’s a gem. 🙂
