This is the largest park in U city and it's a busy place. It is named after U City's second mayor, August Heman. Much of the park used to be a landfill. There are 2 playgrounds, and unfortunately they're not right next to each other like they normally are. There are numerous slides, swings, monkey bars, and all the usual equipment you'd expect to see.
6 sling swings
From the smaller kids playground you can see the bigger kids playground in the background. I'm not sure why they're so spread apart?
4 Baby Swings
Heman park also has a pool that is open to everyone. Rates are
$6 kids, $7 adults with ID card, and pool hours are 9-8pm. Hopefully I'll be able to get there this
summer for a review.
