Parent Comments: This park has loads of activities to engage kids of all ages and abilities. There are three play sets (one features a wheelchair accessible ramp and hand activities). In addition to the more traditional play sets, the park has an aerial playground with bridges. All play areas are well set apart, ensuring good visibility. Due to the popularity, this park can be crowded.
