From the parking lot, head down the handicap path.  The playground is to the left of the large white barns.  There is a field directly behind the playground and another one across the lane that leads to the hiking trails.

The play structure is incredibly tall.  It has 10′ or higher slides but is completely enclosed when the platforms go over about 6′.  The entrance with the stairs has a small section to the left for smaller kids.  It has a tunnel and a short slide.

From the stairs, if you go right there are 3 large slides-straight, open corkscrew, curved tunnel.  The 4th tall slide has no steps and has to be accessed from monkey bars or ladders.

There are a few things on the ground level like benches and talking tubes but no movable parts.
