My kids love this park. It's spacious and has a great variety of things to play on. I also love that they use the fake grass a lot. It allowed me to let my crawling baby down without getting too filthy. It could use a little more shade though. Biggest thing is they need to put in some security cameras... More

This park is wonderful for kids of all ages! So much to do! The play equipment was well designed and very safe. Love that there are shaded areas as the sun gets very hot. We will be back!

So, when you first walk up to this amazing place,you are curious as to why admission was not charged. Indeed, this is a free park and what you get for nothing is extraordinary. There is a butterfly garden with lots of shade and three pavilions with shaded picnic benches for the more mature of us and for all ages of... More

Although this park has many wonderful features, I can't give it a higher score because I felt very anxious and uneasy the entire time I was there with my daughter. There were so many books and crannies that it became difficult to keep up with her and I could just imagine how easy it would be for bad things to... More

If you're looking for the mother of all playgrounds in Lakeland, this is it. People drive for miles to come to this behemoth, and rightly so: it's got equipment for everybody, and even fussy kids won't get bored for hours tramping around the place. It can get a little busy, so try to avoid the peak times.

This place is great for kids a lot for them to do hear and all ages. It is near a busy road but the whole playground is fenced in. The big thing that I don't like is there is not a lot of shade. It gets hot. I think they should put in a slash pad or tables with shade.

This is great for kids. Lots for them to do and from the air the stones are the shape of a butterfly. So cool to see. It is off of a busy road which I do not care for but we should always watch our children anyways. It is set off the road a bit with parking etc.
