Bottom Line:  A nice community park with a simple playground, no frills or wow factor, not much for older kids. 2/5 stars.

The Lyon Park Community Center and playground is owned and maintained by the citizens of Lyon Park.  It is open to the public.

The Review:

Lyon Park is a nice, community owned playground nestled in the Lyon Park neighborhood.  It’s a lovely green space with an okay playground.   The playground features one play structure, most likely designed for ages 2-5.

The play surface is what I refer to as “dirty sand” and seems to have plenty of neighbor-donated ride on and sand toys.

In addition to the play structure, there are three sets of swings:  4 baby swings, 4 big kid swings, and 1 tire swing

It looks to get some shade in the morning (?), but we were there in the afternoon on a cloudy day.

While this park doesn’t have any amazing features that make it “destination worthy”, it is definitely a great asset to it’s neighborhood.
