Gilbert-Layton Park

The playground was ok. Nothing spectacular, but the boys were content.
The big climber from GameTime is fairly large and we really like the BigFoot Slide (bumpy, wavy, fast!).While there are no stairs, with some hand-holding the little one was able to cautiously go up the Curved Fat Pipe steps and the Fat Pipe Climber bridge. There are monkey bars, all sorts of metal ladders and rungs, sky wheels, and those long metal rails that we can’t figure out how to use (climb them? come down sliding on your armpits??)

In the rest of the big-kid area (which is all on sand) there are six swings. 

Ringing the play areas are some benches, and just outside the play area are picnic tables. The little one fell right off of one in the excitement of stuffing his face with dry Shreddies. Ow.

Right beside the big-kid section is the toddler climber. There are a couple of slides, stairs, a bunch of metal ladders, and what fascinated both kids the most: the “jail” window. The 7-year old thought it was hilarious. There are also some old-school metal ride-ons and baby swings.
There is some fencing around the toddler section, but the rest is open.

We found street parking right in front on Chester.

Bonus: There’s really nice chalet that was open with clean bathrooms.
