There are two playgrounds, which include five slides, a variety of arching climbing structures, monkey bars, slide poles, and a steering wheel. The smaller structure has a peering bubble, a slide, and a playhouse or theater section.
This playground is meticulously maintained, the landscaping and fields are manicured, and the public restrooms are well-kept.
The playground consists of a large mulch area with two separate play structures covered by three large shade pavilions. The space is thoughtfully encircled by a concrete sidewalk convenient for mothers with strollers and children on bikes or scooters. The two structures (one for older kids and one for tots) are joined by a rubberized walkway. Benches, trees, and open playing fields surround the area.
The smaller playground is appropriate for toddlers. There are also two infant swings on-site (no standard swings are on the premises).
