As you can see, the sign is quite a bit away from the actual play structure and picnic area (you can hardly see it way in the distance). I prefer to go down Arrowhead a ways and park on Merlot, right next to the play structure. But, if you like a little walk or run, there are some nice paths that lead next to the trees and through the field.
This is one of those small simple parks. The play structure is not by the busy Irvington Rd. and you can easily keep an eye on multiple kids. The play structure has a twisty side and a wheel and some fun things to climb.
There’s a bouncy see-saw with 4 seats which tends to cut down on the arguments. And the 2 kid, 2 baby swing structure.
Next to the play structure is a nice picnic area with trashes, benches, and a water fountain. There are also different wildflowers that bloom throughout the seasons. It would be a very lovely area for a birthday or baby shower. No bathrooms here, though.
There’s also a special little path to walk on. It follows “flat creek” and leads to some other neighborhoods. It actually ends back on Arrowhead near Spearmint St. It’s easy to go down Arrowhead St. back to the park or back the way you came.
A local neighbor told us that the creek comes back in the winter and is frequented by friendly ducks. Just watch out for poison oak!
Arrowhead is a bit hot in the summer, but there’s a little shade to squeeze a blanket under. Someday those trees will be bigger and this park will come into its own.
