Big Trees Park




PARK REVIEW

This was a really great playground. There was a lot of equipment, and it is nice and shady here. It is a fairly small park (4.2 acres). There is a nice tree lined walking path next to the playground across Charlotte Way. This park is nestled inside of a nice neighborhood.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

PICNIC AREA

There were 3 tables next to the playground. 

 

WALKING PATHS

If you cross over Charlotte Way, there is a tree lined walking path which is great for an afternoon stroll. 

 

MAINTENANCE

The park was really clean.  However, the equipment seemed a little worn.  However, it is still in good condition though.  The sand looked old, and there were a lot of leaves in it.  The park is nicely landscaped with trees and rose bushes.

None near the playground.

 

WATER FOUNTAINS

There was a water fountain on a pole next to the playground.

The park is within a neighborhood, so you can park alongside the street next to the playground.
