Park
“One of the best playgrounds around! Magical Bridge playground has shaded area with benches/tables/seats for the parents while watching the kids play on a fun structure. Roller slide, steep slide, regular slide, artificial grass, cardboard pieces to slide down on - plus a lot of the spinning contraptions and swings. Kids really have a blast here. Library is nearby, too, for a nicer bathroom or place to decompress and read. ”

“This place is great for walking and biking. In the spring you'll see ducklings trailing their moms in the marshes. If you follow the path all the way you'll end up in Mountain View. ”
