The new playground is for children ages 2 through 12 and includes two slides, a rock climber, timbers to balance on, vertical climbers, a climbing wall, and a new swing set featuring two adult and two infant swings.The new playground at West Oaks Park is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. The park also features three baseball fields, two full size basketball courts, and four tennis courts.
