The Playground at Finch Creek Park
First, let’s talk about the play structure, which is the first thing you see when you pull up to Finch Creek Park. It towers over the playground, and there are so many fun things to explore within it. Do you have a little parkour fan? Kids will love trying to cross the two obstacle courses suspended over the playground. It’s a little thrilling to cross the obstacle courses because you can see the ground below if you look down! But not to worry: There is a net directly underneath, so it’s all good and fun.
Slides Galore at Finch Creek Park
There are tube slides galore: There are two tall slides for older kids and one tube slide for younger kids. You can reach these slides from one side of the suspended obstacle course to the other. Or, for kids who want to get straight to the slide, they can climb up a ladder.

The Toddler Area
On the other side of the enormous playground is a play tower for toddlers and younger kids. A treehouse play structure is complete with a slide, two nets to climb, and a pole to hang off of. Using the treehouse theme, there is a “wooden” log that babies can crawl through or on top of. There is also a two-person baby swing that caregivers can use to sit facing their children and swing alongside them.
So Many Swings at Finch Creek Park
Speaking of swings: There are many different swings at Finch Creek Park. Along with your typical swings, there are also swings with seats and harnesses for children who might need a more secure ride. Right next to the swings is a big boat-looking Sway Fun ride, where kids and parents can sit in and sway back and forth. In addition, there is a teeter-totter for those who prefer their rides to go up and down.
One of the great things about the playground at Finch Creek Park is that the entire play area is covered with a soft, padded AstroTurf surface. This is really great and it is one less thing to think about when your kids are playing and happen to fall (which is what kids seem to do best!).
The Musical Garden
A musical garden is located off to the side of the playground at Finch Creek Park, near the picnic tables. Here, kids can play with outdoor musical instruments. Such as a rainbow xylophone, pipes that make different sounds when you tap them, and bongos.
The playground at Finch Creek Park is so absorbing and fun that it might be difficult to get your kids to stop playing. But when it’s time to take a break and have a snack, there are a dozen or more picnic tables under a shaded gazebo. Restrooms are also available near the gazebo. On the other side of the gazebo is the splash pad. The splash pad is open during the warmer weather months.
