"I think the designer was on Wacky Backy when he designed this. The kids kept asking ""What's this?, what's that?"". The climbing structure has a climbing wall but the hand holds are more for decoration than use e.g. starfish shaped holds. Another blue plastic and metal pipe structure (basically indescribable), warped monkey bars, springer and normal swings. Even the wooden seats and table are twisted and warped - it is hard to find a straight line. The playground is situated on a hill above water but it is quite a distance away and you would have to be very inattentive for kids to be able to reach the water e.g. reading War and Peace from cover to cover.

Update in 2013. The wacky world has been straightened up a little as a result of an upgrade of the playground. A standard play structure has been added with a wave slide, climbing wall, ladder with square rungs, shop front, rope bridge, ladder, hanging disks and a flying fox. There are also some large springers and a rocker."

After looking at google maps I have concluded that this original review was done before an upgrade happened. There is a regular playground equipment there now as well as the off the wall stuff. To add to my first post, the newer stuff is actually really good quality playground equipment and the original stuff is probably just left there as a reminder for other park designers of what not to do. Definitely check it out.

Not as bad as the review makes it seem. Yes there is a "modern" design center piece, but my 2yo daughter loved the slide with 3 ways to get to it, though she wasn't big enough for 1 of them. The springer animals are all 2 person, and Dad can even sit on the Bee with Daughter, comfortably! I went to 3 parks this day and I would return only to this one in the future.
