Facilities

The playground consisted of a number of unique play features, which were shaded throughout and looked new and sturdy. The splash pad was unique with a Rube Goldberg theme, although not in use during the visit. The indoor gym was small, but in good condition. The gym was being prepared for a festival. Fencing around the tennis court and fields were sturdy.

Water Fountains and Restrooms

None of the water fountains in the park were functioning. The field restroom had dim lighting and the soap dispenser was out of order. In contrast, the indoor restroom was in good condition.

Wear and Tear

Picnic and sitting areas seemed old with peeling paint. Bleachers were worn.

Water Conservation

Standing water was present on the walking paths, on the basketball court, and on the multipurpose field, including the unused baseball diamond.

Park Cleanliness

The multipurpose field had some dog feces, weeds in the corner, and bare spots. There was litter throughout the park and a few instances of bulk items. Graffiti was present on a number of signs and in the field restroom.
