When you first enter, there’s a large sandpit, complete with a playhouse and a trickling water feature, especially fun for little ones. As the pathway winds around, you’ll discover a huge stone dragon that sprays water out its nostrils. The water flows down alongside the dragon’s body, which forms a small stream for kids to play in.
The center of the playground is marked by a fun splash pad where kids can run through bright water sprayers. There are also slides and swings for younger kids ages 2-5 near the sandpit and front entrance.
The older children’s playground is towards the back of the playground. It is definitely for older kids (the stated age is 5-12). It has traditional playground structures as well as a climbable stone wall and other unique features.

It’s a good idea to stick to the stated age level for this section because there is an upper deck path with “peep holes” in the wall that are large enough for a young child to fall through. However, older kids love it and will have a blast climbing down the wall from top to bottom through these peepholes. In addition, there’s a large climbable rope structure, zip lines, and a variety of different swings.
