Believe everything you read about this fabulous park. We took our daughter here when she was three and we just took our granddaughter at the same age! Our daughter showed pictures of the park to her daughter who excitedly said "I'm going to the best park in the world!" for half an hour! But she is so right even though... More

This is an excellent oasis for children 2-10 and accompanying adults. There is room to roam and several climbing structures for different ages in addition to the expected swings and slides. There are picnic tables and it is best to bring your own food as what us available at the site is limited. Also picnicking is an opportunity to meet... More

We were traveling with a five year old and stopped to play and get all the wiggles out. Success. The park had many interesting play structures and was well kept and clean. She was able to do lots of climbing, swinging, and sliding. There was lots of room for running, various bridges, tunnels and a maze to explore. The park... More

My 2 year old and 5 year old really enjoyed their trip to this playground. A perfect spot for a run around in Monterey when some free fun is called for. It's clean and well-maintained. The biggest of all the plagrounds we visited on our 2-week west coast road trip!

This park is great for all kids. Has a maze and within it, lets you know how far Washington D.C is from the exact spot you are at. Has a great rock climbing area, swings, play structures with winding slides, wooden suspension bridge and a factory conveyor belt slide all the way to the end of the park. Previous years... More

This is a fantastic park with huge slides. My kids loved it when they were really young and still enjoy it as tweens. Very beautiful way to spend an afternoon.
