Clinton Park Description
The main attraction for Clinton Park are the Basketball and Tennis Courts. It is rare that I drive by without seeing someone on them.
The playground is located behind the courts and accessible via an asphalt path.
The play structure is small. It features a slide and monkey bars. The structure is better for smaller kids. The slide is not that high. In the picture below, my daughter is contemplating the monkey bars. She was trying to decide if it was high enough for her to hang or if she should climb over the top.
The playground is raised above the ground level where the swings, bouncer and sandbox are located via a retaining wall. There is a special climbing entrance to the playground (You can also enter flat via the path)
The park also has a single bouncer and a sand area. At 12 and 5’2″, my daughter is big for the bouncers. But, she loves them – even if she’s sick of mom trying to get the perfect picture.
