Evergreen Park Description
The structure at Evergreen Park has a rock wall, slide, balance steps, and monkey bars. Kids can start by scaling the rock wall and heading down the slide. Or, they can transfer from the rock wall to the monkey bars across the islands or across the curved steps.
Underneath the top platform is a little theater for the budding thespian to put on a show.
Take a break from the playground and take a nature walk through the woods – or park in the parking lot and walk through the woods to get to and from the playground.
