Price Park is a beautiful place for a picnic, fun on the playground or hanging out with friends.

'Come out to the park, we'll get together, have a few laughs...'

We’re down to the last few nice days of the year before winter sets in. There won’t be too many afternoons left to go outdoors without having to bundled up under a thick coat, scarf and gloves. Since I work at home, there are many days that I don’t go outside at all except maybe to take the garbage out. But this was a day too beautiful to let pass without getting outside to enjoy it a bit.

Jen and I decided to take advantage of a still-warm fall evening to take her kids to Price Park over on W. Maple Street in North Canton. So we put the bark collar on the dog and headed out.

I’ve driven past Price Park a number of times on my way to North Canton. I’d admire the duck pond as I drove by, spotting handfuls of people milling about with kids playing on the playground equipment. But I didn’t realize how big Price Park was until we pulled into the parking lot, got out and started exploring.

“This place has everything”

Jen, her kids and I had a quick picnic in the grass, then the kid’s ran off to play on the massive play structures. When there were bored with one, they moved on to another. And then another. And then another.

Price Park isn’t just a playground for the kids. It’s a great place to have a picnic, play some tennis, feed the ducks, spike the volleyball and maybe even play a game of touch football, if you got the crew for it. You’ll find walking paths and plenty of benches scattered about to sit while you watch others at play or just enjoy an afternoon breeze.

Price Park has a pretty substantial duck pond with no small number of ducks. They’ve figured out the whole “people have food” scam so be prepared for them to come at you in swarms.

Price Park is one of the better parks I’ve been to. It’s spacious, plenty of playground equipment for the kids, and appears to be very well maintained. If you’re looking for some afternoon enjoyment, or just a place to lazy a day away, Price Park provides the place and the space.
