Large slides, bridges, sand.. what else do kids want. The setting near the water is nice. There is a locomotive there but was locked (can't go into that part).. unsure why it was there.

Great playground. Lots of slides, stairs, and tunnels you won't find elsewhere. And there's a gigantic play set here with a height best suited for adults - the fire pole is awesome! This will easily keep you and the kids happy for an hour.

This is a kids park, and it's cute--lots of slides and swings and things you can climb on. I recommend it if you have kids! But only if you can control them. Some were pretty out of control.

What a fantastic play park. Lots of stuff for younger kids and older ones as well. My son loved the small maze. This park was quite busy

A great place for the kids to run off some steam, and get their wiggles out. Lots to explore. A fun park. Short walk from the Monterey Bay Lodge.

Found this park on trip advisor (that's why I use TA) when we were staying in Monterey. It was walking distance from our hotel, just over the road from the beach and had loads of stuff for kids up to aged 12. What a great...More
