Oh My, This playground has everything a child would like to experience in their childhood. It is appropriate for all ages of children from the very youngest to teenage. There are acres of activities from walking on tight rope bridges to crawling in tunnels.

Great place to let the kids run wild. They were working on some of this when we were there but didn’t stop the kids enjoying it. Nice and clean in the park just watch out for bird poo if you walk by the river!

I completely agree with the review below from Straav. Great park, my 4 year old son loved it and went on everything. Nice and safe for him to run around and let off some steam.

For those traveling to Monterey who need to get some running time in for their kids this is great. Many play structures available. I'd say best for the 6 and under crowd but not bad for the 7-8 year olds either.
