This was an amazing park for the kids. Many different play structures all in an enclosed area. Great for smaller kids but also for bigger.

Pretty big playground for the kids. Although it's starting to show its age it is overall, a pretty clean park. My son had a blast here. The only complaint I have is that parts of the playground are covered with cobwebs. Like the sun bridge and the blue tunnel/footbridge.

This is a very fun and entertaining place. The slides are unique and fun and there are many surprises. My daughter spent hours here and had a blast. Best of all, it is free.

This park has been a favorite memory of mine with my children. And my children are in their thirties now. I hope one day they will bring their children and make special memories here too. It has grown from a very simple park to where the city has made improvements through the years. It was sad when they sanctioned off... More

After the aquarium visit, we stopped by Dennis the Menace. It was well laid out and creative. There are tunnels and swinging bridges. I took a seven year old and we stayed over an hour climbing and sliding.

When my children were small no trip to the coast was complete until we had spent hours and hours at this park.The paddle boats nearby are worth the time and money. The park has been updated in recent years, which is nice.

Had picnic there. Nothing special in the park, apart from the little lake in the center. It's right across the cementary, which is a more special place for us and the kids.

Huge playground with sand area, small maze, several slides and swing areas, chain bridge that kids love to cross. Close to beach area and estuary area in the middle of downtown area. Close to hotels, good place to take kids to burn off a little extra energy!
