about Douglas Park:
The sunny playground boasts brand new equipment, including tire swings, digging apparatus, see-saws, and some very unusual climbing and balancing structures. Children and parents appreciate the abundance of sand, and parents particularly welcome the abundance of benches.
A large oval cement area does double duty; it's tricycle, scooter, or skateboard area in winter, and a refreshing water play area in summer, spouting jets of water that dance to the whims of the children.
Birthday parties are allowed; the system for reserving tables is first-come, first-served. There is also a sunny room available for rent very inexpensively.
The six tennis courts are not lighted at night; they also operate on a first-come, first-served basis. The Bacchi Ball area at the Wilshire end of the park is very popular among local seniors.
Restrooms and drinking fountains are clean; they're located on the west side of the park, just south of the tennis courts.
