This park offered a fun playground including a cute train the kids enjoyed playing on. It has a small mechanism that if you pushed on it, it would toot like a train horn!

The playground consisted of some climbing options!


They also had a swing set with two adult and two baby swings.

Plan to bring your scooters or stop at this park on your bike ride. The Johnston Urban Trail winds right through the park area.

There is one open-air shelter with picnic tables and small charcoal grill available.

There is no parking lot. We parked in a gravel drive. I am not sure if it was allowed, but this is the perfect spot if you decide to ride bikes and take a break!
