1. How big is the park? And what are the amenities?
The park itself is a large rectangle in the middle of Deerfield Neighborhood.  There is a large wood chip playground with 2 separate structures and a swing set with 4 baby swings and 2 belt swings.  Other amenities includes, a covered pavilion, picnic tables, several benches, drinking fountain, grill, basketball/multi-use court, a large practice field, and a cemented walking path around the entire field (.4 miles around the loop).

2. Is it enclosed or covered?
The playground is not enclosed or covered, but there is a covered pavilion and several trees.

3. What ages?
Ages 2 -12 

4. How safe is it?
It seems safe, the playground is a good distance from the street.

5. Pros:
There is plenty of climbing, sliding and swinging for numerous kids of different ages.  The grass area is nice and open with plenty of running room.  The walking path is great for exercise or pushing a stroller/wagon, especially since the path distance is measured at .4 miles

6. Cons:
No restrooms, must park on street.
