Daughter had fun

Great little park with some fun play structures for the little ones. Only gave it 4 stars due to normal wear and tear over time, but my daughter had fun.

The weather wasn't nice enough to go to the beach. So we meedeed a alternative for the kids. Dennis the menage park was definitely a good alternative. The kids (6 and 8) liked the playground and we could sit and watch them play.

A park named for Dennis the Menace - how could it not be fun! It's a little dirty and dated in some places but just bring the hand sanitizer for afterwards and let the kids play play play! We had the best time!

This park was really nice and large great for kids of all ages with a view of a pond and a bathroom. Wish we stayed closer so we could go everyday!

This is a well kept, clean park with lots of climbing toys, a swinging suspension bridge, and fun slides. It's just across the street from the beach. Closed every Tuesday for maintenance.

This park will keep the kids busy for a while. There's tons to do with some really unique slides, climbing wall, bridge, and play equipment. There is also paddle boats available to rent very close by, although we didn't do that ourselves.

Great fun but be aware that the park is CLOSED on Tuesdays! My 7 year old son was VERY disappointed when we pulled into the parking lot and found out that he couldn't play in the park.
