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.
