It's huge and well kept, plenty to do to keep a toddler busy and safe for an hour.There's equipment for over five and under five, also an informal lending library. There's a latch on the gate to help keep the kids safe.

Grand daughters love to go there. They loved climbing on the gym set. There is a nice range of obstacles for them to do. Also a lot of things for younger children.
