Playgrounds in Bluffton
The next time you venture into Bluffton with the kids, plan a stop at DuBois Park where there is plenty of shade, a playground in the shape of a ship, and even astroturf. Kids will enjoy exploring and playing on traditional playground features like slides and climbing rope ladders. This quaint park is nice for a family outing, with picnic tables under a pavilion for snacks or lunch.

Oscar Frazier Community Park
Next to baseball fields, Oscar Frazier Park is a solid option for a playground in Bluffton. When you think about traditional playgrounds, an image of Oscar Frazier Park could pop into your mind: steps and mini climbing wall attached to companion slides, and metal climbing structures, and a separate swing set.
The park is next to a large field, so you can entertain one child while the other plays in a ball game.
