Charlotte’s review (6 years old): “I like the monkey bars!”
Luc’s review (4 years old): “I like finding caterpillars.” (We were there during peak tent caterpillar season.)
There are two separate play areas at this park, which gives the preschool kids a bit of protection from the bigger, faster kids. The larger climber has a straight and curly slide, monkey bars, and monkey bars that hang on chains and are wiggly. What are those called? There are also two swings. The preschool area has two baby swings, and a little climber with two slides. There’s a basketball court next to the playground, screened by trees. The park also has a nice gentle hill that’s good for longboarding (or so I’m told, I’m not cool enough to figure that out on my own).
