An extensive playground with multiple areas to play. There was plenty to climb, slide and swing. There were games painted on the ground and basketball hoops. There is also a large field with a baseball diamond. There is a nice nature trail also. We even saw some deer. There are plenty of benches for parents and a picnic table. It is not fenced in but it is behind the school. There is plenty of parking on the weeknds.The children at this school are very lucky.
