I wish we had a park like this! We were visiting Lakeland and I needed to kill some time, so I walked around this awesome park. I've never seen such fun-looking playground equiptment.

If you haven't been to this park, you need to go. Your kids will love it. It has underground tunnels, hills to climb, trails, multiple play areas and plenty of places for the parents to sit and relax.

We saw this park in passing and decided we would stop by. This park is very clean and has lots of things to do for children of any age.

A very nicely maintained park with extensive playground facilities including handicapped-accessible playground equipment. This is a popular place, so parking can be at a premium (there is an overflow lot about 1/4 mile away).

This is one of the best playgrounds I have visited...ever! And I am a playground addict, having visited hundreds both in the US and worldwide. This playground has adventure, balancing, climbing, spinning, and swinging equipment unlike you will find at most parks. Plan to spend a couple hours, as no one will want to leave.

This park was awesome. Free! My toddler and I had a blast. Things for all ages to do. Lots of slides, swings, climbing equipment, sand pit, artificial grass hill for sliding or rolling down!

Had my son's 8th birthday here. Mine kids loved it and all we had to do was bring food! If you don't want to pay to reserve a pavilion, be sure to get there early to stake out a few tables.

We love the idea and design of this park, but we have serious security concerns about it. There are always large numbers of children, with too many areas where they are not easily supervised. We have heard disturbing rumors of unattached/unrelated adults in some of the underground areas, attempting to contact children. Not going back without significantly lower kid/adult ratio.
