This relatively new park is an oasis in an urban setting. The entrance of the park is gorgeous! The gate has an arch with a beautiful floral design that greets you; meanwhile, the lovely fountain in front of the entrance may catch your eye. There are tables and benches all around where you can enjoy your lunch. Overlooking the park is a giant 3-story mosaic mural by Josef Norris, which depicts 3 children, created from broken mirror, glass and ceramic tile and paint. The playground is divided, one side designed for younger children while the other side is more for older kids. Ground is made out of soft rubber and the play structures are very colorful. The facilities are all brand new and top notch! There is also a community garden at the back of the park.

Back in the 1990s the kids of St. John's Educational Thresholds (now Mission Graduates) summer program determined that the North Mission had lots of liquor stores and bars and no parks. They organized and advocated and won $$ from the city and state. The result was the aptly named Kid Power Park! Too late for them to play, but some of their younger siblings and even some of their children have benefited. They did good work.
