Amenities include a community garden, a PebbleFlex® safety surface on the playground, a multi-purpose field, a shade structure, a walking path, fitness features for adults, picnic tables, barbecue grills, a community message board, an irrigated landscape, a plaza/community gathering area and game tables.
