This is a fun park with a broad layout and many advantages. In the playground section there is separate play equipment made of plastic and metal for toddlers and big kids on soft clean sand with limited shade. You won’t find a fence, but the area is all on one level, the play structures are in line of sight of one another, and it’s not near any streets. The toddler structure has a couple of slides with one being a side-by-side double. But toddlers will be drawn to the tunnel slide over at the big kids’ structure, it seems to get bottle-necked with giggling bodies. This structure has horizontal bars, a longer slide, and a track glide with landing pads. The full-bucket swings and big kid swings are set part from the play structures which lowers the risk of kids running into the swing zone but poses a problem if you have multiple children still who need side-by-side assistance and want you to be at two different places at the same time. There is a bench strategically placed for child observing or grabbing that ever elusive conversation with a fellow adult.


It’s a great place to have a party with its unique advantages such as 30 picnic tables, 14 barbecues, 2 softball fields, 2 volleyball courts, 4 tennis courts, 2 horseshoe pits, and one soccer field.
