This play ground is perfect for ages 1 to 10. Several different areas for kids to roam. Fenced and gated so I even walk the outer path as the kids play.

Lots of room for kids to run, jump, climb, swing and spin! Some unusual play equipment that we've never seen before; the kids had a BLAST and wanted to go back the next day! Highly recommend.

Outdoors. Vast array of people, children have the opportunity to climb rocks, pump water, crawl under a giant molehill, beat on jungle drums, spin sitting in a bowl, a disc, or a steel figure 8, climb rope structures, walk round on a self-rotating merry-go-round, or along on curving retaining walls in the shape of butterfly wings.

I have taken my grandkids here many times and they just love it! So much to do, so many different activities to excite and challenge them. Even climbing up the grass covered hill and rolling down is a rare treat in FL. Lots of trees make for many shady areas during the hot summer days. Picnic tables and other seating... More

From the butterfly garden, to the slides and ropes, you'll be pleased to find a relaxing and welcoming place just outside the heart of Lakeland.
