The playground is large, and includes several different sections. There’s the main section which includes the train play structure, and several building structures for play.
The train play structure is unique. It has a “mountain” which can be climbed to access a bridge with a slide. The “mountain” and bridge goes over the train structure.
Behind the train engines, there’s another train car which as climbing opportunities. There are also some kid-size “buildings” to play in and around.
Another section of the park is the hill that that includes rope climbs and a roller slide. There’s a rope ladder to reach the top of the hill, and then a fun slide down on the rollers.
