Small neighbourhood park.  There's a play area with the usual slides and climbs/jungle gym for the little ones.  There is a walking trail around the park.  The perimeter is partially fences on the sides facing the roadway to prevent the tykes from running into traffic.  The grounds include a soccer field, softball field, two hardsurface tennis courts, and a few picnic tables with charcoal grills.
