  • Lots of area to use a picnic table, spread out in the grass, or pick a shaded bench. Bring snacks and lunch and let the kids soak in vitamin D and get rid of some energy! Don't forget a few balls and ...  read more »
  • Visited Harrisonburg during our vacation in Massanutten and stopped at this play ground. Kids were happy to play there even though it was hot and the place does not provide a lot of shade. Wish there ...  read more »
  • A good effort for a small town , but small in space and inventive to encourage children to grow in knowledge and imagination, a please that keeps children from 1 to 7 years entertained for a few hours...  read more »
  • Awesome free park for the kiddos. Offers a variety of fun for all age groups. Bring your bike, scooter, or skateboard and enjoy the roads and paths within the playground. Nice picnic shelter and other coverings. Would like to see some more shaded areas for adults to stay out of the sun on hot hot summer days. But other than that, this place is a pleasant surprise for visitors and people new to the valley.
  • Grounds are generally wheelchair accessible, some areas have woodchips. Wheelchair swing was complicated and needed a park person to operate so we couldn't use it. There are ramps that lead up to the slides, but some of the slides higher up had stairs that a wheelchair couldn't get to. We spent about 10 minutes there before my 9 year old got bored and wanted to leave. Could have put more thought in the playground design for wheelchairs.
  • Well laid out and maintained. Harrisonburg needs a few more parks like this.
  • Well maintained playground for the little ones. Plenty of room for them to run and play as well as a picnic shelter for birthday parties, etc.
  • The only decent playground in Harrisonburg. No monkey bars. The slides are all kind of slow. The race track is awesome, though. What ruins the park is that the city closes it when it is below freezing. Besides being absolutely ridiculous, because low temperatures do not make playgrounds more dangerous, it is also outlandish because it is below freezing a third of the year in Harrisonburg making the park completely inaccessible. The last straw -- this actually kind of forced my hand on leaving Harrisonburg -- came in late March. For three days in a row it was above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The snow had all melted off the ground by the end of the first day. Yet the city kept the park fenced off with a big sign saying PARK CLOSED, because "the ground is still too frozen from a long winter." (Yes, I called the city Parks and Rec Department while my five-year old was in hysterics that we couldn't go to the park on a summer-esque, sunny day, and this is what the Director told me.) I took my daughter there anyway, hopping the fence and teaching her about civil disobedience in the face of park fascism.
