We loved that there were plenty of kids after school playing while we did. We loved the climbing net. There was also a little gazebo that my kids where my kids loved to play “shop.” We love that there is an open field next to the sports fields for all sorts of backyard games. You can even picnic on this field, and there are hardly any trees, so it’s easy to fly a kit. We even saw someone playing fetch with their dog. It is next to a quiet street. You can park right up next to the playground and there is plenty of spaces.
The playground isn’t fenced in. The playground area has woodchips.
This was a great after-school playground (and we loved how close it was to Cici’s Pizza where we had dinner after). It was smaller, but plenty of equipment for the around 8-10 kids that were there. My son loved doing the monkey bars and climbing around the ropes and nets. My daughter loved all the slides and the swings. They loved playing shop and other imaginary games at the play gazebo.
