Harwood Park is a small neighborhood park. There is no parking lot, and no parking on the park side of the street, so park on the side of the street with the houses. There is a new playground with slides, a tunnel and a turtle to climb on. The new equipment has rubber mats with faux grass beneath it, which I have not seen anywhere else yet. There is also 2 sling swings and 2 baby swings adjacent to the new playground. The park has a few trees around the playground which offer a little shade. The picnic shelter had too many tables under it to be able to sit at them. The park also has a large grassy area with benches, great to play frisbee or tag!
