Our Full-time Parks & Recreation Director and seasonal maintenance crew oversee and maintain six neighborhood playgrounds. The playgrounds have been modernized in recent years, largely through community-based volunteer efforts. As a part of that modernization, each playground was given its own unique equipment to create differentiation in the users experience at each playground. All six playgrounds have a small, shaded picnic shelter for public use. In addition, five of the six playgrounds have a basketball court.  Click the name of each playground for Google Map directions.
