The kids LOVE this park. Therefore, that's where I would take my granddaughter. However, in my opinion there's not enough shade, and the plastic ground makes the park even hotter. Also, for some reason teenagers seem to want to hang out on the end of the park where the tunnels are, and on several trips kids reported the teens were... More

Perfect playground for ages 3- 12. Lots of climbing and balancing devices as well as the usual swings and slides. The park is well maintained and beautifully landscaped. There are clean restrooms, cold water fountains, and covered tables and benches.

Plenty of things to do for kids and even older family members. Grandpa shared a large hammock swing with child, and nana played big plastic drums. We had a terrific time.

We drive from 30 minutes away just to visit this park. It has an amazing variety for all ages and abilities and stimulates physical activity and creativity. Beautifully maintained. I wish our town was so dedicated to beautiful spaces like this for families! Amazing tennis courts next door and a big field to run, play ball, and fly kites.

Common Ground Park is a great place for toddlers to tweens. There are plenty of activities to explore and room to run around in. I go with my son and granddaughter and we have a fantastic time. There are plenty of places to sit and areas where you can have a picnic. Fun for all!

We always take our Grandchildren here when they come to visit. As a matter of fact, they INSIST on it! Great way for them to run around, get some exercise and many equipment pieces are for balance which is great.

This isn't your average playground with some swings and a slide. This playground is mind-blowing. It has multiple activities for kids of all ages and there are fountains that run through the park. Also, there are plently of small gazebos so you can pack lunch. Make sure you have enough supervision though because this is a big playground and it... More

This is a very nice, but small park with a lot of things to do. Great playground area for children. Clean. Nice picnic area near the playground. Walking paths. My granddaughter and I always have a lot of fun at the park.

A great place to take your kids to burn off some energy. The various swings, climbing apparatus and areas to test your balancing skills make this a gem for a free few hours of activity. Lots of free parking too.
