Oregon Trail Playground Features

This park playground is fun and unique with a pirate ship style. There is a path around the playground with benches. There is also a sea monster coming out of the blue ground. At the start of the ship, there is an anchor and a printed map and place to sit with two holes to climb through. The side of the boat features rectangle windows you could climb through as well. At the back end of the ship, there are also some windows and spinner things off the ship where you will find the stairs.

After going up the stairs, you can see out windows or go down the wavy slide off one side of the ship and a twisty slide off the other. There is also a hard bridge over to some other windows. There is also a tube tunnel on the bottom of the ship to climb through. Using a sideways rock wall you can also climb up to the platforms to the slide or even the fireman pole.
