Second Place: Playground for Katie and Friends at Huguenot Park

Third Place: Deep Run Park

It's a giant among area playgrounds, fabled for its labyrinthian mirth-inducement. "Merry Funford," situated at Mary Munford Elementary, is an intricate maze of sand, slides, swings and squeals. Built 21 years ago, it was the first accessible playground in Richmond, Mary Munford principal Greg Muzik says. "Weekends are like a circus out here." Another popular play spot, located in Huguenot Park in Chesterfield, is the Katie and Friends playground. Like Munford's, it's wheelchair-accessible. The playground at Deep Run Park is favored by parents because it's one of those rare area playgrounds that was built in the shade.
