Huge park

Very cute park with lots of fun things for kids! It wasn't overly crowded and there was plenty of space to park.

This park is a high for families with kids. The city of Monterey keeps it in great condition. It has a very controlled environment for kids i.e. one way in and out. Great chance to see a steam locomotive close up.

This place is a must see for both kids and adults! Clever slides and climbing equipment that utilize the park itself make this a definite destination if you visit Monterey. Be sure and try the slides that go down the hill!

This park is a great attraction for little ones and in a lovely setting in Monterey. The park is pristine and has many activities to keep everyone busy and sure to get plenty of exercise. There is a rope bridge and wonderful slide as well. Not to be missed.

Add rain, sunshine, sand, climbing, running, swinging and grandchildren. Stir wildly, and watch the fun. So much to do and see, and so little time, so they had to do it all at once. This was a day that at the end, sleep was sound, and hearts were happy.

The park is very big for a playground, but well worth a walk from the touristy areas! Played here for hours!

Our two grandchildren exhausted themselves on the different pieces of equipment. They had a ball! They loved the physical challenges and overall experience.

So bummed that this park was closed. It's usually one of our favorite spots to visit with kids. Not sure when it will reopen but looking forward to going back.

It's under construction. The park is closed today. My son is disappointed. Otherwise should be a fun place to visit after early dinner.
