Southern Community Playground is an awesome playground! Big kids will love it too! There are many different structures to play on, and there's a little hill where kids can run up and down or search for caterpillars. There is pretty landscaping including blossoming trees and little boulders, but not much shade. 

After playing, you can walk the greenway to Southern Village's Market Street for a gelato at La Vita Dolce or a slice of pizza at Pazzo. Sometimes there are events at the Green here, such as movie nights or family games night, and some Wednesday evenings there is live music outside on the patio at La Vita Dolce.
The Southern Village Greenway that starts just south of and runs past Southern Community Park leads all the way to Morgan Creek Greenway in the north. Take the left fork when you're almost at Culbreth Road to walk the tunnel under the road and connect with the Morgan Creek Greenway. Walking to the right leads to Merritt's Pasture, a field. Walking to the left leads to the longest path. This is a 45 minute 2.4 mile walk one way, from Dogwood Acres Dr just south of Southern Community Park to Morgan Creek trailhead parking.
