Playgrounds

The Recreation Board and crew maintain six neighborhood playgrounds that have been modernized in recent years, largely through community-based volunteer efforts. The playgrounds typically include playground equipment for children about ages 4-10, a basketball court, and a picnic table. Click the name of each playground for Google Map directions.
