Due to the pandemic, economics, or reasons we can't even start to suspect, you may have noticed that there are not a lot of Halloween decorations this year.

Springer Park Playground is a little secluded playground hidden deep in Springer Park. It has a climbing-focused playset to challenge the upper body strength of older kids and a toddler playset for kids who just want to stick to what feels comfortable. Although it is not part of the playground, the community rock garden is what sets this park different from all the others.
Brentwood Park’s playground has a lot of amenities. Brentwood Park Elementary is to the South East and two tennis courts are to the South West of the park. The playground is located near the North West corner of the park which abuts quiet streets. This playground contains a playset, a wood stump climber, a swing set, a seesaw, a spinner climber, a sandbox, and a wading pool. There are also lots of benches and one covered picnic table.
