Promontory Park in El Dorado Hills

dsc05630ed1

Last week we visited Promontory Community Park in El Dorado Hills for the first time.  We are in love!  The BUTTERFLY sprayground is the cutest thing ever and the unique playgrounds make for a whole new park experience!

My kids were giggling with excitement as we walked up to this park.  Since it was a very hot day, they were so ready to get drenched and flew around like butterflies checking out all the water features.  They got a kick out of being sprayed by a garden snake and loved running through the rainbow!  My daughter braved the dumping cones and my boys splashed around the fountains.  I was pretty happy myself to get a great photo of them all on the adorable caterpillar!

When they were ready to explore the dry playgrounds, it was fun to see them surprised at new structures they hadn’t played on before.  They seriously got some great exercise in these creative areas.  A huge bonus…the playgrounds by the sprayground are shaded!

If your kids still have energy after cooling off in the water features and playing on the two shaded playgrounds, there is yet another playground!  Across the parking lot, Promontory Park has a “regular” playground where they can finish wearing themselves out.  You can almost guarantee the little ones will be falling asleep in the car on the way home!

If you are like me, then you’ll appreciate the beautiful green hills as a backdrop while your kids play.  Bring your friends and a picnic and you’ll be set for hours.  The park is open from 10am – 8pm daily, May 23 through September 28.

No matter what part of Sacramento you are in, this park is SO worth the drive!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    In other words, how do i search for blogs that fit what I want to read about? Does anyone know how to BROWSE through blogs by subject or whatever on blogger?.

    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  • My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome blog!

  • kangertech subox battery January 19, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

  • Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

  • lip collagen January 20, 2017 at 5:39 am

    Currently it sounds like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  • sea turtles hatching January 20, 2017 at 6:28 am

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its niche. Superb blog!

  • cayman islands vacation January 20, 2017 at 7:30 am

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  • leatherback turtle January 20, 2017 at 8:30 am

    Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.

  • Elidia January 22, 2017 at 6:51 am

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
