Best for: Kids of all ages. This spacious playground offers two separate play structures designed for toddlers and bigger kids. The toddler area features shaded canopies, making it ideal during summer months. Age-appropriate slides, swings and miniature play animals (like a dinosaur, duck and parrot) round out the fun. Kids age 5 and up can enjoy the larger slides on their side of the playground, which also features a miniature zip line, an old-school car structure and a sign language alphabet display.

For your convenience: Benches surround play areas. Additionally, shaded seating between the two structures and a multi-chair are on-site. Accessible parking, restrooms and a picnic space are also available.

Safety: Two tunnels in the toddler play area have worn-out surfaces. Also, keep an eye on the kids near the creek and rock structures close by.
