The main feature of this playground is the climbing structure in the middle of the park. When we visited in 2021, the large blue slide was closed for repairs. However, the rest of the climbing structure could still be used.

There’s a set of monkey bars as one way to access the climbing structure. There’s also a rope bridge and a climbing net. Some parts of this structure are quite high, so be cautious, as there is just a rubber surface underneath the structure.

In addition to the main playground structure, there’s also a smaller toddler playground with baby swings. The toddler play structure is much lower than the play structure for older children.

It appears as though there is a new restroom building between the main playground and the toddler playground. However, when we visited in 2021, the restrooms appeared to be closed.
