“Free,fun,beautiful kids playground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011 via mobile

This was a real highlight for my five year old. The park is beautiful, has
a lot of playground equipment, running room, and a real train the kids can climb and explore.

“Kids love this park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2011

After a long day of driving, we took our kids to this park the next morning. They had a blast. They didnt want to leave. It has a real steam engine train and plenty of slides. They have a lion water fountain as well. If you are in monterey and have kids under 14 years old, this park will be the highlight of their trip.

“This playground was WAY more awesome when I was a kid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2009

Everything cool has been taken out. The airplane. The high-rise merry go round. The big silver slide. All replaced with the boring, run-of-the-mill plastic equipment that seems so popular these days. I hate lawyers.

“Best park ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2008

We are glad that we stopped here during our trip to Monterey. The kids ran around for over an hour and never got bored. The locomotive and maze were favorites.

“Fun day in the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2008

Dennis the Menace Playground through the kind referral of a local art shop proved to be well worth the visit. It's a playground fit for both kids and adults. The large train and several variaties of slides keeps you busy and active. The mini maze was easy and entertaining. If you're stay is long and you have some time to spare I would recommend making the stop. Luckily the park was open due to the holiday but would have normally been closed on this weekday because of the onsite preschool program. Be sure to check their schedule before you plan your trip. In a safe location with good distance from the street so you can let your little ones run free. Submitted March 2008
