  • Payne park has the rubber floor so it's fun to play and run around on, won't get messy. It also has a small area for the smaller children plus a wet park, mists comes out. Also has a running and skateboarding park. Checkers restaurant is a block away so you can walk for a snack. Theres also a nice size open field to have a picnic or play ball.
  • Perfect park for sitting on a hill and reading a book. Lots of sunlight and well kept. If it’s the summer bring water and sunscreen. It also has a 9 hole disc golf course built in!
