The park is HUGE! The play areas are padded with grass, sand, wood chips, and spongy mats.
The park features statues and fun lions for water fountains.
In the past, children could climb on a real locomotive. Times have changed and due to safety regulations, the train is fenced off and now only for viewing.
You can still skip along the train track path!
The park features everything a child could hope for! Swings, Slides (enclosed tunnels, squiggly, high, roller, twisty, turvy, bumpy, and regular) Spinners, Bridges (sunburst, suspension, net, rope, bouncing, horseshoes) Climbing Nets, Rock Climbing Walls, Tunnels that feel like you are in a sewer pipe, Shipwrecks, Forts, a Maze with lookout tower. There are grass areas, sand areas, benches, picnic tables, rocks and trees to climb.
You might even find a unicorn playing in the grass.
The park includes the Frank E Sollecito Jr Baseball diamond.
The baseball park features bleachers, a concession stand, and restrooms. Rumor has it you can even get ice cream there!
There are kyaks and pedal boats to rent on the pond. The pond has it’s very own island! You can even feed ducks around the pond.
The remainder of the complex includes a 1.2 mile sidewalk/walking trail with exercise course, Dog Parks for both large and small dogs, a group BBQ area, the Monterey Youth Center, a fishing pier, dance studio, zipline, and beach.
We want to thank the Friends of Dennis the Menace Playground for all they have given to the children.
