Parking: street parking
Age Range: all ages
Ground Cover: wood mulch
Features: Play structure with slide, a couple of climbing ladders, monkey bars, and some swings. Nothing too fancy, but it gets the job done.
Surrounding Park Area: This park is just a teeny tiny little patch of grass basically, probably the lot size of one house. It is fenced in on 3 ½ sides though by a 6 foot chain linked fence, which I find comforting for the parents who have kids that run. There is some greenspace to throw a frisbee or ball and a covered picnic table and charcoal grill. Not bad for a simple plot of land.
Shade: No shade on the play structure, but the picnic table is covered and there are a couple of tree on the periphery of the park.
Seating: Picnic table
Stroller/Wheelchair Access: Nope.
Safety: No particular safety hazards. As I mentioned above, it has a fence that goes around the whole park, which I think is nice.
Cons: Just a small simple playground and park. There are no bathrooms. There is no water fountain. There is some doggie poo where there owners didn’t clean up after them.
Overall Assessment: I gotta say that any playground with the name Esther Peachy LeFevere has to be a cool playground. Just the name emanates some kind of sultry jazz singer with overdone makeup and hair wailing on a riff in a song. Or maybe she was an old southern belle with a huge hat and a prissy dog. Either way, what did Miss Esther Peachy LeFevere do to deserve this kind of park? It seems like a pretty lousy piece of land for the type of lady I am imagining in my head….oh well…. nevertheless, this is a piece of land that gets the job done. Greenspace, picnic tables, playground. I can imagine having a birthday party here for my little one without anybody complaining. I certainly hope Miss Esther would approve.
On a side note: I cannot find a single thing about Esther Peachy LeFevre on the internet. Who is she? That is truly the question.
