Parking: Small parking lot directly next to the park
Age Range: 2-8
Ground Cover: Wood mulch
Features: One large structure featuring a plastic tunnel slide, rainbow climbing ladder, stationary bridge, wobbly bridge, wide lower plastic slide, steering wheels, monkey bars, and zip line. Four swings (two baby and two big kid swings) are located a little further away.
Surrounding Park Area: Volleyball court, basketball courts, shaded pavilion structure with BBQ charcoal grills directly adjacent to the play area. Brownwood Park Recreation center also next to parking lot. Further south are two tennis courts.
Shade: The playground itself is in direct sunlight, although a few of the play structures offer small amounts of shade. The pavilion directly adjacent to the playground is completely shaded and the swings are shaded.
Seating: Several benches
Stroller/Wheelchair Access: Sidewalk leading from the parking lot to the playground, but no sidewalk leading to the area with the swings.
Safety: There are a few opening where a child could be pushed out of, but they are not particularly high.
Cons: The swings are far from the play structure from a parent point-of-view. If you have one child with you swinging, it is difficult (if not impossible) to keep an eye on another child on the play structure.
Overall Assessment: This is a nice playground and safe playground. Seems to have activities for all ages. Love that the parking lot is directly adjacent the playground and that there are many picnic tables in the pavilion. Super easy to play and have a picnic!
