Baird Park has longest arc swing set in the area

 Baird Park at 275 Keele St has the longest arc swing in the area, created by a higher than normal for the height of horizontal support and support wings and and a swing seat positioned lower to the ground.  Seated and riding through the lowest point  the swing passes, ensuring to keep  the swinger’s body at a  quiet state, the body of the riders as almost floating – a wonderful feeling  for a toddler.
