Playground, Park, Public, Cost?

Brand new playground (2011) that plays nicely for ages 2-14. -Water feature can be activated from Memorial Day through Labor Day (sometimes later). -Drinking fountain -bike rack -picnic tables -benches -Very fun wobbly platform that can handle up to 4 kids (but better with 3 or fewer). -wonderful twirly thing that requires quite a lot of coordination but is very rewarding for bigger kids (ages 7 and up) -Rubber bouncy mat surface is particularly nice on the feet -Lots of swings, including one handicap accessible -Some musical panels on towers -nearby basketball courts are great for older kids while the younger sibs play on the playground Negatives: -sound tubes (there are two sets) don't work even though the playground is brand new -sometimes frequented by preteens/teens who are loud and vulgar
