White Birch Park has 3 separate playgrounds. The first one is next to the lower level of the Hazelwood civic center. It is a toddler playground with 3 small slides, an old stagecoach (there was one just like this in a park we used to frequent when I was a kid...at least 20 years ago) and a horse that can be climbed on but no longer bounces. There is a map of the United States painted next to the playground.





The second playground is located next to the pool. This playground is mainly for older kids and has several slides that are high off the ground and a glider handle. It is pretty new and in good shape.




The third playground is located next to the pedestrian entrance to the park (from the adjoining neighborhood).  You can also reach it from a path leading away from the pool toward the neighborhood. It is an older play structure and good for toddlers, preschool and school-aged kids. It's not as tall as the previously discussed playground.
