The Merrimack Play structure is a sprawling and gorgeous structure with a series of bridges that children can cross to get from one activity to another. The long bridges give kids plenty of room to run around, socialize, and have fun, which is the most important aspect of any play area. The bridges all have metal barriers, which make the platforms safe, but also look nice and allow younger and shorter children to easily get a view of their surroundings without having to look over the railing. Merrimack is also loaded with great activity panels, with two colorful spinning Gear Panels, a Tic-Tac-Toe Panel and Maze Panel for fun games, a bubble window for an ideal observation point, a Bench Panel for a place to rest, and a Store panel on the ground level for imaginative play. There is even a crawl tube which can be used to access the store panel.
