Parking: parking lot next to the playground
Age Range: supported sitters – 12 years
Ground Cover: packed rubber mulch
Features: 3 distinctive play structures – a music area with drums and bells, a toddler area with climbing tunnels and slides, a large area with rainbow climbers, half moon climbers, rock walls, several slides, monkey bars, twister monkey bars, and several wall spinners. Two sets of swings – 4 baby swings and 4 big kid swings
Surrounding Park Area: Recreation center; baseball/softball field; multi-use field; basketball court; tennis courts; picnic pavilions; stage/amphitheatre (interactive musical feature); greenspace
Shade: This playground has some considerable shade. There are large trees on one complete side of the playground that is a little uphill, so parents can sit there and look down on the playground. The structures themselves also lend to some shade. Unfortunately, the baby swings are in direct sunlight.
Seating: Several benches and a large amount of greenspace right next to the playground.
Stroller/Wheelchair Access: This playground is unique in that the actual play structures can be accessed by stroller and wheelchair. You don’t have to leave your little one in the stroller at the bottom of the play area, just bring them on up! The entire area is packed rubber mulch, so wheelchairs and strollers can easily get around.
Safety: There are several places a child could fall on the larger play structure, but there is a separate toddler structure if you are worried. The area surrounding the playground seems nice and since the playground is on a road (although not too busy), you are not completely secluded.
Cons: The baby swings are in direct sunlight, while the big kid swings are somewhat shaded.
Overall Assessment: Built in 2007, this is a really great playground. The three different areas make the playground seem large enough for many kids without seeming overcrowded. The stroller/wheelchair access to all areas of the play structures is unique feature that other playgrounds don’t have. I don’t know how many times I’ll be at the top of the play structure with my toddler and leave my baby in the stroller. One thing that my toddler loved was the wall spinners; one of them was a puzzle and he figured it out in no time flat and love love loved it! Finally, this playground is on the PATH trails, which may be a plus for some.
