Overall assessment: This playground is designed for middle schoolers making it a bit more challenging than most. Despite this, I didn’t find it stressful with my toddler as the climbing structures he can access aren’t too high off the ground.

It’s not that big but as my son said, “it doesn’t look at fun as it is actually”. My bigger kids adored the zipline (although they both needed help getting on) and thought the triple slide was great.
