Add some Tonka Trucks and the kids in Monona would be entertained for hours…
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a huge pile of rocks at the end of Monona Drive:
The Monona Drive road construction is in full swing (I’m not sure the precise stage they are at with the road construction – Monona Doug would probably know).
Here’s a close-up view, because I’m sure you can’t get enough of the sight of these rocks:
When my youngest daughter saw these rocks she said, “Awesome! I want to play in those rocks!”
She said that even though she isn’t normally the type to want to climb and play with Tonka Trucks and such. That’s how awe-inspiring this pile of rocks is.
Oh, speaking of Tonka trucks, there are two vintage all-metal Tonka trucks in the sandbox at the red park (Maywood Park)!
Metal Tonka trucks were ubiquitous when I was a kid but they switched over to plastic in the late 1980s. Bleah. So I appreciate that Maywood Park has these all-metal trucks. It’s yet another way in which Monona is awesome.
