“Lots of variety and a summer bonus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

What a great playground, worthy of Central Park. First off, it's big, with lots of different things to do. The center of the action is a huge stone, rubber, and concrete play structure with ladders, steps, ramps, bridges, etc., all sized for kids. In the summer they turn on fountains and spray water along the paths, so it becomes a great place to cool off and play. The play structure is also connected to a house-sized boulder at one edge, so kids can go back and forth, adding more variety.
