Hamilton Airport Park (also known as Palmisano Community Park) is a great park. Totally worth the drive out here. There are so many fun things to play on for different ages. All equipment is new made of metal and plastic on wood chips and rubber mats. There is an airport theme carried over in the play toys such as a free-standing airplane and helicopter. With the limited shade, toddlers will enjoy the cool water play sand pits. There is a small lawn and a picnic area with kid sized picnic tables. This area is not fenced in, but it is not near any busy roads either.

Bathrooms

Clean portable toilets.

Drinking Water

Because of its close proximity to a baseball field, this playground looks to be part of a school. It is not. You are welcome to play here. The one thing unique to this place is that there is not a big central play structure but several different smaller items. The most impressive is the double water tube tunnel on a spongy rubber surface which is functional in hot weather months. Next is a yellow pyramid rope climber and a canoe and two toddler full-bucket swings all on woodchips. There is a circular sandbox with a sculpture of a bear in the center. The last play area has two big kid swings, one large enough for an adult to hold a child on their lap. There is a tall curly slide and two stone sculptures, one a sphere and the other an arch. There is a small grassy area with many picnic tables and a mini amphitheater with a small circle stage and two rows of benches. The area is all wheelchair and stroller accessible because of the cement sidewalks. Near the shade of trees and the baseball bleachers is a small barbecue and picnic table. Note this playground is not fenced in so watch the creek and road.
