  • I like it, but don't love it. The location is kind of weird, like you can see and hear the 205 freeway but it is still wild enough that we spotted a mother a baby deer this morning at the park. The playground itself is underwhelming. It's small, there's only two small swings and one baby swing that don't go very high and one small slide. There's lots of picnic tables but getting one in the shade is difficult. Go early to get a good spot and before crowds come in. I think my biggest gripe is that the splash pad doesn't turn on until 11am! That's just crazy! Most days, especially if it's hot, kids want to be out and playing by 9/10am so this is ridiculous to me. The splash pad itself is not big and cannot accommodate a lot of children so that is also frustrating. The sand area is very small and the water is nice and shallow for quite a ways. We had fun, but it wasn't amazing.
  • Family loves it here! Been a staple spot for 7 years now. Nice waking trail, nice ball complex, cute park with multiple nice covered shelters. As a previous life guard I love that they have life jackets out year round for anyone to use.
