Overall Assessment: This is a run of the mill play structure, nothing special. Ralph David Abernathy Blvd is a busy street and you can hear the street noise while you play. There is also a bus stop close by, so there is a lot of people walking through the park (which I like, you may not). You know, this play structure is nothing special. I am not going to come back, but if you live close by, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It’s just boring. Sorry.
One thing to note is there is A tile collage by artist Jimoh Buraimoh entitled “A Meeting of Elders.” Kind of cool to make a public park space an art gallery too!
