Surrounding Park Area: large school fields. To the south there is a hill down to public grassy fields.

Overall assessment: This playground is large with lots of equipment to challenge and entertain school-aged kids. There are still things for younger kids as well, like the saucer swings. The large rope web climber is unusual in the city and sure to entertain older kids. This would be a great playground to take school-aged kids in search of a new challenge.
