This was not a good park for high energy one-year-olds.  The area is kind of a peninsula.  The playground is set against some trees and bushes blocking the water but most of the rest of the area is open to the lake, including the beach.  There is a large grassy area in the middle.

There are no stairs up to the first platform–everything is climbing ladders but it has a plastic rock part that is easier but not as easy as stairs.  Great for older kids.

The ground cover is all sand and a great place to dig.
