This is a great spot for families to bring the kids to play. The one drawback is that it is directly alongside the train tracks and the train whistle is very loud possibly causing hearing damage! Otherwise, a nice spot for kids to hang out.

My 2 and 5 year old LOVE this play area! They could happily spend hours there. I really appreciate it being fenced in, smartest thing ever in a playground. Lots of great landscaping and seating for the parents. Large field beside it, great for a picnic. Beach right down the street. The play area itself is like a little history lesson of a Chumash Indian village with 'waterfall' slides, 'rock' tunnels, village huts and a rainbow bridge. Its certainly a fun twist on the regular old park visit. We come and play as often as we can.

There is places to buy food and snacks across the street and bathroom facilities down towards the beach within walking distance. So, if you are exploring Carpin

Requires an adult to be very "interpretative' but still a fairly good playground for kids under 10, who can use their imaginations. Not to big, so it can get crowded, and nice to have benches available to sit and watch the action.

This is a wonderful play area for kids. It is safe and fun. Right in front of it there is the Island Brewery, so if that is what you like, you can go there while your kids play and watch them from there! It is also fun for kids when the train passes by!

Great initiative by local Rotary to finance the play area; but super poor location! Play area only separated from busy train tracks by 4 ft chain link fence... Absolutely not a place to loose eye on your kids! There is a blind curve just ahead on the tracks, so you do not see the trains coming until it is too late...........

Nice small park near State Beach. Especially good for smaller children. Includes many different elements, from tomols (boats) and dolphin statues to climb on, to unusual slides, and walking paths.

Wonderful playground with soft surfaces and really fun informational displays. Right next to a big open space perfect for running off lots of energy. Appeals to kids of all ages.

My kids are 8 and 9, and they were bored here. The play area is really beautiful and interesting, and it did hold their interest for a very short time; they liked the animal statues and the canoe. However, the statues were too hot to sit on, and there were no swings or anything. They were bored after about 10 minutes.
