This place is a great place to take the kids to play and explore. Grandma will just love to watch the kids play and climb on the different pieces of equipment.

Perfect playground for ages 3- 12. Lots of climbing and balancing devices as well as the usual swings and slides. The park is well maintained and beautifully landscaped. There are clean restrooms, cold water fountains, and covered tables and benches.

Plenty of things to do for kids and even older family members. Grandpa shared a large hammock swing with child, and nana played big plastic drums. We had a terrific time.

We always take our Grandchildren here when they come to visit. As a matter of fact, they INSIST on it! Great way for them to run around, get some exercise and many equipment pieces are for balance which is great.

Yes. There are several picnic tables, or you can also picnic on the grass. There are also open air pavilions that you can use, if they are not already reserved for parties.
