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.
