This is a great park often referred to as just Rocket Park because it's all space themed. The rocket slide is huge, almost 3 stories! There are sling swings, a adaptive swing and baby swings, a sand area, a digging toy, a bouncy thing that resembles the space shuttle, a car kids can "ride in", a rock wall and more. Bathrooms and a nice covered pavilion are right next door. The sign says for 5 and up because it is so tall but my 3 year old enjoys it. However him being up so high does make me a little nervous so I always keep my eye on him. They also have a teeter totter that he really likes. A review on Yelp says there is a snack station here where you can buy sno cones and icees! I've never seen that so I'm definitely going to look for that next time I go!

Thanks for the review and pictures Angie!
