We spent a good hour here with the kids after the aquarium. This park had a lot of different activities and play sets for the kids including a pint sized maze. This is worth a stop for a picnic and playtime.

It's great for little and big kids. There's a real train kids can climb on and different playground equipment. Close to downtown Monterey and Fisherman Wharf if you are on vacation. Nice break from the regular tourist attractions.

I have never seen so many different playground items for kids to play on. There were many families there and the kids were having a blast. Best playground I've ever seen.

The weather wasn't nice enough to go to the beach. So we meedeed a alternative for the kids. Dennis the menage park was definitely a good alternative. The kids (6 and 8) liked the playground and we could sit and watch them play.

We came by this park on our way to our motel. It is big enough to cycle around, they even have little paddle boats to rent. It is a lovely park but not a park I would say is a must do or must see. Even if you drive pass it and not stop, it's ok. Not one that you... More

Great little park with some fun play structures for the little ones. Only gave it 4 stars due to normal wear and tear over time, but my daughter had fun.

A park named for Dennis the Menace - how could it not be fun! It's a little dirty and dated in some places but just bring the hand sanitizer for afterwards and let the kids play play play! We had the best time!
