Overall Assessment

This playground isn’t as accessible as it would seem at first glance. However, the playground would be great for kids who love a fairly traditional playground set up with climbing and overhead features but don’t like pea gravel. It is also is a great option if you like playground hopping as the Samuel W Shaw School playground is nearby.
