Cousler Park Playgrounds
There are two main playgrounds at Cousler Park.

While the Inspiring Hope playground is the main feature of the park, there is also a smaller playground in the middle of Cousler Park.

Where to Park
There are three main parking lots and one small lot available at the park. If you’d like to walk on one of the shorter walking trails, park in the lots along Church Road.
