Barnett Family Playground is in a fantastic area on Lake Mirror, just a short walk from downtown Lakeland. It has two space nets, one that you can spin around like a merry go round. There are huge disc swings, a spinner, a tightrope, unique monkey bars, a music station, a motorcycle see-saw, and a tractor slide! On hot days, kids can enjoy the splash pad with a bucket that dumps water on your head!

The park is decorated with some nice sculptures of family scenes. 
For some reason, when I was there on a weekday morning there were no kids at all at the playground.
Next door, check out Garden Bistro, a little cafe with views of the lawn and lake. Past it, don't miss Hollis Garden, a gorgeous garden with little partitioned areas, all with the blue backdrop of the lake. Speakers in the garden play classical music- your little ones will love it!
After, walk along the lake promenade checking out the water lilies. And then have a tea or coffee at one of the cute coffee shops downtown.
