Overall Assessment: This playground is the exact same playground as Brownwood Park Playground in East Atlanta, except it has not been kept up quite the same. The colors are different, and unfortunately, Grove Park’s colors are chipped and worn. I like Brownwood Park, so I like Grove Park playground. The playground is nice and safe. I don’t have any issues with letting my 3 year old run free without fear of him falling. The swings are close by, so I can push my baby and watch my 3 year old simultaneously. Overall, it’s a nice playground.
