The playground features a twisty slide and a lower side-by-side slide. There are monkey bars, curved ladders, and more fun on the play structure.

Beyond Longshore Park

Longshore Park is across the street from the Argo boat launch and down the street from the Argo Canoe Livery. We parked in the Argo lot across from the boat launch.

With several picnic tables, it is a perfect place to take a break and have lunch, dinner, or a snack before or after tubing the Cascades or heading out on a river trip.

Longshore Park also makes a great stopping point on a long walk around the river crossing at Barton and the dam at Argo. I have walked from Bandemer to Barton to Beckley Park to Argo and across the dam back to Bandemer
