While the temperatures are forecast to dip in the coming days, last week's brush with summer was a reminder that long days spent outdoors are just around the corner.
Patch wanted to help readers decide where to head out on their next outdoor excursion. We asked readers throughout the state which park or playground is their favorite. After five days of voting, the winners are in. Check out which parks Patch readers think are the best of the best and support your favorite in the comments section below. And when the summer weather returns — or even before ... it's not like it's going to get THAT cold — check out the top parks and let us know how your visit went. Even better, upload a photo of your excursion for inclusion in Patch's neighborhood galleries.
