  • This is such a great place for kids. I wished I had a park like this while growing up. Everything is colorful and well kempt. The kids like all the areas of the playground. My girlfriend's kid love to go explore inside gopher hill!
  • Great park for all ages. Fence around the whole park for safety. Has a lot of different options for kids to choose what they want to play on. Well maintained, clean, and fun!
  • This is an amazing playground! Shelters with cover, benches with shade and various types of play areas make this a great spot to bring lunch and truly hang out . Did I mention the beautiful butterflies, the landscaping with native plants that attract butterflies and the path to walk. There is also a field on the back side where you can play football, baseball or fly a kite!!!
  • Amazing playground for all ages. Clean and wonderfully thought out. My kids loved it here. Beautiful park.
  • A different type of playground. Super safe and expertly designed. I take a 4 year old there regularly and he loves it. A cut above your average playground, Kudos to the City for this one.
