The Equipment The equipment is divided by ages 2 to 5 and 5 to 12. No one is concerned about the mulch once they see the rainbow colored butterfly ornaments. Tots can experience crawling through a tunnel, climb a mini rock wall, whizz down a slide, steer the wheels on the bus, and play a pair of bongo drums. There is a large umbrella canopy covering some of the play equipment. Older children have a lot of distinct choices here when it comes to play. There are climbing pieces galore here! From rope obstacles and tall step climbers, there’s even one that looks like the spokes of a bicycle. There are other challenging climbing gyms, but the cylinder version was “pretty cool” according to some ‘tweens present during our visit. The fun doesn’t end here though. Fear not, there are a pair of twisty slides, a tire-like gym to navigate through, a swinging bridge and throw in some manual gears and wheels to work on fine motor skill too. Adults must try out the standing orbital spinner. Trust me, it’s not just for kids! The playground is flanked by a swing quintet catering to friends with special needs, toddlers, standard and even a tire swing for added fun. A picnic area shaded by large trees allows you to watch the kiddies from a safe distance. The Scene I am curious to know who Haley M. Smith was, but I couldn’t find any info. This colorful playground was renovated in 2014. Located off of Herndon Parkway, the park features several fields for baseball, softball and soccer. There are basketball and sand volleyball courts, a playground and fitness stations. The parking lot is large, but gets busy on the weekends when sporting events take place. My family drove nearly an hour to visit this park and it was not a disappointment. Age Recommendation 2-12 Restrooms Clean, indoor restrooms sans baby changing station.
