The main section of the playground is new and completed at the end of 2021. The new playground is built near mature trees, so it is a bit shaded.

The playground is build to look like a treehouse with a two-story fort. There are 6 slides, several types of monkey bars, and obstacles to climb.

There’s also a long zip line at this park, which has a ramp to walk up in order to get a good start on the zip line. It’s one of the longer zip lines I’ve seen at playgrounds. It stops a bit abruptly at the end, so be sure to hold on!

Note the orange fencing around the grass at the park. From a distance, it looks like the playground may be closed due to the fencing, but the fences are protecting the grass while it grows. The playground equipment is open, they just ask that you keep off the new grass.

Picnic tables are available around the park.

Everhart Park also has a walking path which includes a historic bridge to cross the small creek in the park. The walking path is paved.
