This playground is an excellent place for families with young children to relax while the kids explore the activities. There is also a Little Library on site

The kids really enjoyed running around this playground. It's your standard equipment to climb, slide & swing. They also had clean bathrooms!

My small family and I enjoyed an hour at this playground. My four year old loved the swings and climbed all over the equipment. My fiancé and I jokingly showed our son what parcore was, we are not experts by any means, and he picked up on the fun right away. He was jumping around the playground and showed off his new athletic skills. At any rate, my family and I had a great time.

A few steps away, near the bay, we spotted two osprey and their nest. Although the smell of the bay during low tide was retched, I will never forget the osprey flying after two seagulls who flew too close to their nest.

The whole experience was absolutely perfect. I would recommend this playground to any family and I will return with mine in the future!

This is a really nice playground with things for big and little kids. The unique piece is that it has a big sandbox with tons of toys free for the kids to play with. Lots of space and parking and a little off the beaten path.

It's huge and well kept, plenty to do to keep a toddler busy and safe for an hour.There's equipment for over five and under five, also an informal lending library. There's a latch on the gate to help keep the kids safe.

Very nice little park and playground in Dewey near the bay. Fenced in and clean, this park offers a place for the young ones to run off some steam and offers an alternative to the beach. It's sort of hidden away so it is never crowded.

Took our grandson to this very well maintained playground several times during the week of our vacation. A range of playground equipment for infants to older children is available. Located on the bay side near several small parks, this is an ideal stop during morning walks.

My kids are too old, so we didn't actually use the park, but we did like how it is fenced and had lots to do. Clean.
