This playground is very close to our house. My three year old calls it the “little park.” He will play here for about 30 minutes before he gets bored. It is a small playground, but he enjoys it. Plus it is close to Publix!

I really enjoy walking at Rothenbach park. Some sun and some shade. 2.75 mile walking trail or 1 mile trail. Restrooms available-clean too. Also a play yard for children.

Great play ground and mile loop for the kids on bikes. The 4 year olds even attacked it. Great place for a play date. Ate a picnic lunch too. Lots of shaded picnic tables and a piñata post! How smart!
