3 Things for Families at Cedar Avenue Field Park

  1. Play a Game of HORSE. The basketball half-court has two different hoop level and is ideal for practicing shots. Bring a ball and enjoy a family game.
  2. Have a Picnic or Grill Out. There are picnic tables and plenty of green space for an impromptu picnic. Or bring charcoal and have a grilled lunch.
  3. Relax While the kids Play. The resilient surface and small tot lot is ideal for independent play for even the smallest toddlers, but older grade school children will find the bigger playground equipment fun and challenging enough.

Cedar Avenue Field Park Playground

The sand of the playground was recently replaced with a resilient poured-in-place rubber surface. The current play structure is standard playground equipment made with plastic and steel, but is due to be updated when funding becomes available.
