This nice little playground is at the public Sombrero Beach. So you don't have to go to McDonalds to have a place for the children to play. You can go to the beach, have a picnic, swim or snorkel and the children can play on the equipment if they get bored of the beach.
Fondest memory: Sombrero Drive runs along side the K Mart shopping center. Drive back about three
miles you will find Sombrero Beach. Obey the speed limit in the residential areas.
Sombrero Beach is a public beach - one of the best in the Keys. It is FREE.
The park has been recently refurbished with new picnic shelters, bath houses and a playground and is in pristine condition. A very nice sandy beach and swimming area all along the waterfront. Good parking out on the street and the area is fenced so the kids can run amuck. Pets are welcome.
There is a nice playground area with slides and things for the small fry, or they can just play on the beach.
