my little guy and 12 year old love to play at this park. Volunteers do a great job keeping things clean and tidy and the park is a safe fun place for my guys to have fun.

Although this lovely playground is designed specially for children with special needs, it is welcoming and fun for all children. It is spotlessly maintained by volunteers and due to Salinas' terrific weather, pretty accessible year round.

Great park for children. Lots of children are here on weekends so it makes it difficult to keep track of mine. Beautiful, clean and a few picnic tables for a small party or family gathering. Lots of parking also.

This little play park is just wonderful. So soft and safe and so many things for your children to do. I was in awe. Being a Dennis the Menace baby, I feel this park pretty much beats it.
