What makes it noteworthy: Parents love that A. R. Schell Park is large enough to have two different play sets to entertain kids ages 2-12, each next to a restroom. One play area has two regular swings and two baby swings, a balance beam, five slides, a climbing net and two sets of monkey bars. The other playset has four slides, several child bouncy toys and lots of shade.

Extras: In addition to the two play areas, there are several softball, baseball and soccer fields. There is a walking trail, a pavilion with a grill, several trash cans and water fountains.

Safety: This playground received an A* on the Playground Safety Report Card. There was a bit of litter in the park but overall, it was clean and safe.
