The smell of hay makes you realize you’re in horse country. The enormous scrub oaks shade vast portions of this lovely park. There are two play areas both on sand. The one for toddlers has a small wood and plastic structure with a side-by-side slide, a tunnel and steering wheel that is accessed by a chain ladder, supervision advised here. There are two swings one full bucket, the other a half bucket and two coil riders: a motorcycle and turtle. The big kids’ area is a rambling wood and plastic structure with a row of monkey rings and fireman’s pole, a spiral climber, a tire swing and one tall twisting slide. There is a picnic table and a bench in the shade between the two play areas.

Situated right next to the fire station, this park offers lots of fun. There are two play areas enclosed by one fence. The two toddler full-bucket swings and big kid swings are next to each other making it easier to watch and push children of varying ages. There is a plastic and metal toddler structure over wood chips with four slides and a sand pit, a small playhouse and a frog coil rider. The older kids’ area has one big slide, a climbing wall and many bars to hang from. You need a lot of upper arm strength to use this set. There is plenty of shade, benches and grass and a few picnic tables. The open trash bins invite yellow jackets. Park Rules are posted.
