15+ Parks with Mommy and Me Baby Swings

15+ Parks with Mommy and Me Baby Swings

Families are looking for parks with Mommy and Me baby swings, also known as Expression Swing by their manufacturer (GameTime). I like the Expression Swing because it puts the older rider at the same eye level as the baby or toddler.

Another manufacturer has a model called the Generation Swing (by Little Tykes Commercial).

The Generation Swing is also a tandem swinging experience, but the older rider is at a different eye level than the baby/toddler.

It also seems a bit more crowded and more straddling for an adult than the Expression Swing.

Another type of swing is the Friendship Swing (by Landscape Structures) found at only a few parks. These ones are described at “multi-user ADA inclusive.”

Finally, there is The Konnection Swing by BCI Burke which is built for a child sitting directly on the lap of a parent, but with back support so as not to fall off. (The ones with yellow bars in the photo below). Here’s a video of how the Konnection Swing works!

Now, obviously, these are NOT only for moms or mommies and babies. Obviously!

However, this is the term parents are using when they type their query into search engines. So, as a blogger, this is the best way for me to make sure this information reaches the greatest amount of searchers.

Even if I called them “Parent and Me” swings, then I’d be leaving out caregivers, grandparents, and siblings.

The best description I can think of is face to face tandem baby swings but then I’m also leaving out toddlers who are also able to fit in these swings.

So I think I’ve settled on my newly made-up name of Swing with Me Swings. It’s an invitation to all rather than excluding anyone or getting wrapped up in naming conventions. Let’s just get out there and PLAY!

Thanks to those readers who joined in on a crowdsourcing brainstorm about where we've seen these Swing with Me Swings parks in Orange County, CA. We came up with a list.  Mission Viejo seems to be the leader in this trend with Aliso Viejo jumping in with one park.

More Parks with Mommy and Me Baby Swings

I still need to get out to these parks to get photos.

Lagos De Moreno Park at Laurel Elementary School in Brea has one, but the park is only open limited hours.

Yorba Regional Park in Anaheim has added a few of these to their swingsets (thanks to Megan for the intel)! I will grab photos soon.

For those who are residents of Great Park Neighborhoods, “The Pools” area has these swings (but it’s intended for residents only).

Travel to LA County to see these ones:

Cameron Park and Charter Oak Park in Covina both have them.

Bolivar Park in Lakewood (photos on the city site are old, but new photos if you search Google)

More Parks in Mission Viejo and Aliso Viejo

Thanks again for all the input from my readers. This list wouldn’t be possible with your help!

Hi Lucero,

If you want some in your city, I would figure out who makes the decisions about park equipment. Sometimes it's the city council and sometimes it's a Parks and Recreation Commission or Board. You can copy a link to my post to share in your email to request that kind of equipment in your parks. Or sometimes it helps to actually GO to the meeting and give them a few moments of your opinion during the public comments period. They actually LIKE to hear what residents want, so definitely make your voice heard.
