“Free outdoor fun”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Our kids had a blast playing here. Limited parking in the actual lot but plenty of free street parking around. There is water and sand so be advised your kids can get dirty pretty quickly. If you're in Monterey with kids it is an excellent option for a picnic lunch and an afternoon diversion.

“Fun place to let the kids run around and play”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Take a break from "doing something" and just let the kids play on the giant play structures, including a full on train that they can climb on top of. Statue of Dennis the Menace at the entryway gives the park its name. Smaller fenced toddler area is a nice touch.

Reviewed May 22, 2012

This park was AWSOME. I loved the slides and the lion water fountain, the climbing structure and well....everything. Kids of all ages can enjoy this park. My son (3) had a blast.

“Fun for the kids”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

This is part of a larger park with a large lake. There is a large grove of eucalyptus trees that smell wonderful. Many ducks, geese, and other water foul. Limited parking is close by, but fills up fast. As everywhere in Monterey, take a light jacket.
