The newest and coolest playground at Westhoff is Brendan's playground. This bug-themed, all-inclusive playground includes sling swings, toddler swings, ADA accessible swings and 2 saucer swings; a splash pad (opening next spring); playground instruments, including a custom piano and three other instruments; fully ramped climbing and special slides that are safe for those with cochlear implants.  There are benches, picnic tables, and a restroom outside the play area. It is in full sun but there are several “umbrellas” covering areas throughout the play areas.  The play structures have wheelchair accessible ramps to enter and exit the play structures and the entire play area is fenced in.  One of the play structures is designed for 2-5 year olds and the other ones are for 5-12 year olds.

There is also an older playground in the park. Amenities include two lighted baseball diamonds, two lighted softball fields, two pee wee fields, sand volleyball, eight horseshoe pits, basketball courts, tennis courts, a handball court, a small skate park, two playgrounds, a pavilion, restrooms and a concession stand (open during games). This is a nice, shaded, quiet playground. There are 2 play structures, one for toddlers and another for older children. There are 4 baby swings and 4 sling swings. I’m sure it is busy when there are baseball games going on, but during the weekdays it has been very quiet. There is plenty of space to run around in the grass and have a picnic. There are picnic tables close to the playground.
