Time Out says
Stop by one of four playgrounds (Classic Playground, Sachkerah Woods Playground, Southwest Playground or Woodlawn Playground) to let the kids run wild and climb to their heart’s desires. The playgrounds also contain spray showers that come on when it hits 80 degrees! If it’s sports you’re after, you’ll want to enjoy the numerous fields and courts for basketball, baseball, handball, football and more. Prefer to hike? Choose from tons of trails to see gorgeous trees, flowers and cute critters. Last but not least, this spot offers three dog runs and plenty of spots to barbecue.
