Wurster Park Description

This was our first trip to Wurster Park. I did not know that it was there until I saw it on my navigation system on the way to Allmendinger. Wurster Park offers something for kids of all ages.

There is a sand box and small slide for young children. There are two taller slides including a twist slide. There are monkey bars (although my 10 year old could reach them from the ground).
