The Equipment There is one main structure that has five slides: two straight, side-by-side pair, and a spiral slide. The swing set consists of two infant swings and two regular swings. There are three pieces of equipment for climbing along with a balance hopper and whisper dish. The baseball field and tennis courts were in great condition. There are also basketball courts. The Scene Located across the street from J.E.B. Stuart High School sits the park by the same name. The students have literally decorated the entire road that divides the school and park into a giant mural. It’s actually pretty neat. However, not so neat was seeing graffiti spray painted on the playground equipment. The playground is partially shaded depending on the angle of the sun. The playground is not fenced, but it sits far enough back from the road that it wouldn’t be a deal breaker. As with older parks, the surface is mulch. Adjacent to the play structure are a few picnic tables and a grill. Parking stinks as it’s very limited on one side of the street. When school is out, I’m sure you could park at the school lot. Age Recommendation Due to the limited equipment, kids over 6 years of age would be bored. Restrooms An eye sore of a port-a-potty is set right as you walk up the main path of the park.
