Mixtwood Pomona Park Playground Review
Mixtwood Pomona Park offers a structure, swings, and a sandbox. With two picnic tables, several benches, and grill, it’s the perfect place for a small meetup. The park also offers lots of natural shade from trees.
My daughter’s favorite part of the park was the spinner in the sandbox. This was a new feature for her. The sandbox also has a digger and a seesaw plus plenty of toys.
I love the little theater under the play structure with seats for spectators. A great summer activity would be to have the kids make puppets and then put on a show at the park.
Mixtwood Pomona Park is small, but is the perfect size for a family or small group outing.
