Community: Fairview – Fairmount Drive and the alley behind Fairview Dr SE
Parking: Unfortunately there is no good parking for this playground. There is an alley that runs along the park, however, it is not set up for visitor parking. You can probably find some parking a short walk away in the neighborhood.
Nicky’s Review (3 years old): “I liked the swings. And the train”
Robbie’s Review (3 months): liked swinging with me on the saucer swing.
Age Range: 2- 12
Ground Cover: pea gravel
Shade: Some shade in the play area from the play structure itself. There are some large trees in the surrounding park area.
Features: School-age climber with steps and twisty slide, Apollo spinner, train climber, 4 seater bouncer, tall spinner, saucer swing, ring spinner, 4 swings (2 baby).
Surrounding Park Area: narrow park area with a pathway and a hill along the west side.
Seating: a few benches and picnic tables.
Overall assessment: This playground has a lot to offer, but what really puts it over the top is not only does it have a train climber, but you can see the freight train line from the playground as well. There’s also a great little path for kids to ride bikes and trikes on.
