CT Hidden Gem: Hannah's Dream

Finding playgrounds for toddlers - heck, for kids in general - can be a full time job sometimes! We are always on the lookout for a great playground and park. Connecticut has tons of them but it's so hard to find them if you aren't familiar with the area. 

In New Haven, we literally stumbled upon Hannah's Dream and it was such a fun find!

We had all intentions of hitting up Lighthouse Point Park one late afternoon before grabbing dinner and we were baffled by the charges to get in. So, we had to go on the hunt for another playground. Hannah's Dream is literally around the bend from Lighthouse Point Park. 

Now, it is on a relatively busy road and it is not fenced in. HOWEVER, the playground itself is pretty far back from the road so that helps a lot. 

It is a HUGE park with a good sized playground. It is totally in the sun so be sure to bring sunscreen or a hat for your little ones. 

Tons of climbing contraptions, lots of slides, tunnels galore, and lots of smaller playscapes making up the big playground. 

There's also a big sandpit for kids to play in. It's not build-a-sand-castle kind of sand, more like dirt, but the kids didn't care. There are no sand toys anywhere so if you want to utilize this part, be sure to bring a bucket and shovel! 

Overall, this park was a pleasant surprise find for us and we'll totally be visiting it again in the future. 

Have you ever been to Hannah's Dream in New Haven?
