Braly Park




 

PARK REVIEW

Braly Park is a small (5.6 acres) neighborhood park with a Japanese inspired theme. It is really cute. Some of the playground equipment is unique such as a Japanese Boat/Sand Box. There is also a big concrete frog that squirts water that all the children really enjoy. There is also a nice duck pond next to the playground...with bright blue water. There is a lot of playground equipment in this little park.


HOURS -- 6 A.M. to 9 P.M.
