Just in time for spring break, there are two local parks with new play equipment ("tot-lots") that should be opening this Friday, April 5, 2013: Carmel Grove Park, located at the corner of Carmel Creek Road and Carmel Grove Road (just behind Piazza Carmel), and Del Mar Trails Park, located on Del Mar Trails Road between Mona Lisa and Mercurio. On the other hand, the Winwood Park playground, located on Carmel Creek Road just south of Carmel Creek Elementary, will close on April 8 for a renovation that should complete late this summer. So, we gain two brand new playgrounds but lose one for a while.
