Gordie’s Review (15 months old) – Stairs were fun. Swings were okay. Spinner was a little scary.
Age Range: Primarily 5-12, Only the infant swings and train play structure are really pre-school appropriate
Ground Cover: Pea gravel
Features: 2 large playstructures with 4 slides; 1 small train play structure with twin slide; 4 swings(2 infant); medium size spinner; jeep play car; digger.
Surrounding Park Area: Large flat grassy area; outdoor rink; baseball diamond
Shade: little to none
Seating: 2 picnic tables, 5 benches and a small gazebo outside the play area.
Stroller/wheelchair access: great to the park but not inside the play area
Overall assessment: Great playground for school aged children. Quite big with a lot of variation in the equipment. Worth a 15 minute drive especially if you were going to meet someone. Not worth driving to for smaller children unless they have older siblings or friends that are coming too.
