Kids will love climbing to the top of the climbing star.

Wellington Park Overview

The sand box has lots of space and had lots of trucks and other toys for playing. There are trees around several sides of it providing shade at multiple times of day (our photos are from 4:45p in late July).

Wellington Park Sandbox

Wellington Park also has a large open field and a softball/baseball diamond with backstop. On our visit there was also several soccer nets that could be spread out for an informal soccer game or practice. Unlike the rest of the park, the fields have little shade.
