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.

This place is well maintained and it has different areas for different ages. The only thing was that today it was 94° with a feel of 108°, so we were there only for an hour. There's plenty of shades to sit under too. This place its a most visit if you have little kids, but maybe in a cooler day.

Park is divided by age groups, but your child can move throughout with ease. Nice equipment. Not much shading though. Great for birthday parties.

My kids have played here for years. Now they are grown up and still enjoy walking through this park area. Great for kids of all ages, even retirees like me.
