Veterans Memorial Park Playground Review

Veterans Memorial Park is a destination park with it’s pool, ice rink, skate park, and ball fields. However, the play structure does not live up to the rest of the park. The structure is small and lacks any truly remarkable features. On the plus side, it has a rubber mat making it a great choice after rain. It is also a great diversion for young children who are at the park for a sibling’s sporting event.
