Parking: on street parking on Lakeshore Drive, McLendon Avenue, or Almeta Avenue
Age Range: all ages
Ground Cover: wood mulch
Features: play structure with 3 slides, rainbow climber, bridge, platform area. Separate swings (2 baby and 2 big kid).
Surrounding Park Area: Large greenspace surrounded by trees; tennis court, creek, picnic area
Shade: the playground is not shaded, but there are trees surrounding the whole area. You can definitely find some shade, if needed.
Seating: benches surrounding the playground
Stroller/Wheelchair Access: There are broad paved pathways through part of the park. The grade is fairly steep leading down from Lakeshore Drive. The areas at the other side of the park (opposite Lakeshore Drive are accessed by steep flights of timber steps.
Safety: no safety concerns about the playground. There is a small creek where kids can play (my 3 year old boy and his buddy liked throwing rocks into the creek), so beware of that. There is a ladder type fence where you can look down over the creek that my son loved climbing up and I had to tell him several times he was too high….
Cons: The play structure is not a huge or elaborate thing, just a simple structure. Older kids definitely would not enjoy it very much (but then again, there is a large field and tennis courts to play on)
Overall Assessment: Seriously love the simplicity of the playground. It is a pleasant park that has some varied features and topography that make it interesting. You can’t really see the surrounding streets because they are blocked some by the trees. There is a little creek running behind it to throw rocks, collect trinkets and splash some. There are several areas where the trees are “wooded like” so your kids can explore in the woods, without actually exploring in the woods – if you know what I mean. This playground won’t win any awards, but it is a nice, quaint place to play.
