The buildings in the park are vibrant with murals, giving the park a bright and colorful appearance. The park added the murals in 2020, painted by artist Juan Pineda.

Another unique feature of the park is that the perimeter of the play spaces is a “trike track”. Bring bikes to experience this loop trail that winds through the park.
