Overall Assessment: Nice neighborhood playground. I’m not overly enthusiastic, but it is a nice area. I love that the entire area is enclosed by a fence, so you can let your kids run free without any fear. Also, the entire park area is quite large, so it’s nice to have a pocket of greenspace, although there are no trees. I think that this playground is a great little neighborhood playground and if you live within walking distance consider yourself lucky.
If you are driving from another area of town, may I suggest Vine City Playground. It’s just nicer and newer.
