Julia's Garden and Playground at WWI Memorial Park - North Attleboro

Icon Park Design
Inside WWI Memorial Park (a.k.a Watery Hill) in North Attleboro is Julia's Garden, not what you'd expect inside a park that boasts an awesome petty zoo and great hiking and picnicking. Julia's Garden design is unexpected, but perfectly suited for the park. It's unlike anything we've seen. Basically, it's a little girl's fantastical world, complete with a wishing well, unicorn and butterfly fountain. The landscaping, gardening and sculptures compel you to explore this fairy-tale land, a dream come true for the family of Julia Cekala, who imagined such a lovely spot for their daughter, and made it happen. Julia's Garden Foundation.

Biggest Playground Slides in Boston, Stoughton, Arlington and North Attleboro

This is a short list of long slides. There has to be more out there! As we all know, in the summer sun, slides burn skin. To beat the burn, I saw a girl sit on a pillowcase for the ride down. It was cooler and faster! Brilliant.
