The park is more on the modern side, with unique play structures suited for all age levels. There is a big and small structure, some bouncy seats, a climbing structure, a merry-go-round and a couple of features for imaginary play.
At the top of the grassy area, you will witness gorgeous views of aspens lining Lower Thomas Creek and a little patch of the GSR area of the city.
The grassy area is hilly and has a little dirt trail surrounding it. It's a welcome change from the usual flat grassy areas at parks and can be highly enjoyable for picnics with great views of the mountains and the playground below should you want to keep an eye on your children.

You can gain access to the Lower Thomas Creek Trail, a 4.7-mile out-and-back trail found toward the side with views of the GSR (look for sign) and is best used from March until October (snow accumulation in the winter can make walking difficult).
