Hi Jennifer. The restroom facilities are top notch at the park. There is a small playground area and lots of trails. The river is not really conducive for your girls to play in however. May I suggest Sumner Lake State Park. They have a fantastic covered play area and a beach area were the girls could enjoy nice shallow water. An abundance of wildlife lives there as well. you'll love New Mexico. Have fun.
