Kelly Road Park - Apex, NC
Kelly Road Park in Apex is definitely an old school park - the playground is made out of wood! - and it brought back great childhood memories for his Chief of Staff of an elementary school playground she loved. Peter seemed to love crawling through the many hiding holes just as must as his mama did! Below are the Park Points, but we also recommend checking out Peter’s Instagram highlights, where we post videos from our park trips so you can see before you go!
