Overall assessment:

This playground is split up into two large sections. The red section is designed more for preschoolers but my kids all really enjoyed the firetruck climber.

The blue area is designed for kids 5+ but younger kids can also have a lot of fun there. The spaces are close enough so you can monitor both areas at the same time.

This is a great playground for kids with a big age range although it is probably not enough of a challenge for kids older than 10. This playground is such a huge improvement over what was there previously, a great addition to the community.
