Park Under The Bay Bridge

Park Under The Bay Bridge

 

This is a great playground.  It is located right under the Bay Bridge on the Pass Christian side.  There are two play set.  One is geared towards little kids and the other is more for older ones.  Its got slides, climbing walls, a see-saw & musical toys.  It is partially under the bridge which creates a nice shaded area.  There is a nice big pavillion with tables.  This is nice for lunch.  Also, it is a great place for a birthday party or other gathering.  There is also a posted walking path for those who want to do a little exercise.  

The Duck Pond

 

Bay Saint Louis Duck Pond is a great park for family fun.

Bay St. Louis did a wonderful job making a wide open area into a sweet spot.  The Duck Pond is phenomenal!  Kids and adults both love to come here.  There are benches and swings around to relax and watch the ducks play.  If you want to be more involved, the ducks love to be fed.  The park includes a great water crossing bridge complete with a small waterfall type scene. I know many an hour will be spent enjoying this wonderful scene set in the heart of Old Town.

E Scenic Dr & Fleitas Ave – Pass Christian

Just beautiful!  The first thing I noticed when we pulled up to this park was the gorgeous Oak Trees.  They are scattered all over the park and create a lovely shaded area where all of the picnic benches are.  This is such a wonderful place to spend the morning playing and eating lunch.  The equipment…WOW! There’s a lot of things to play on.  You child will have a blast here.  Speaking of blast….there are 2 huge guns mounted at the front of the park facing the beach.  I imagine these guns were used back in the day to defend the land against pirates and such.

Nature Tail with Butterfly Garden

 

Pass Christian Mississippi Nature and Butterfly Garden park located on Menge.

Nature Trail with Butterfly Garden

Menge Avenue  in Pass Christian, MS

The Park is not a playground, but more of a nature spot.  It has a nature trail with a Butterfly Garden.  It doesn’t seem like the park has been maintained lately.  The signs are down or hardly legible.  There are fallen trees and a good bit of over growth.  This might be a good thing if you want to see some wild animals such as deer.  It is located on Menge Avenue not too far off of the beach road.  Although some signs are down it is a great park for a scenic walk through the woods. The path was well worn although some trees were laying across parts of the paths. It is not a good park for Pass Christian area toddlers looking to play, but will surely please nature and hiking enthusiasts.
