My grandkids love it! They never get bored, and always leave reluctantly.

Possibly my kid's favorite place in the world. Only downside is when we have to leave.

Mad Max + Sanford & Son + Survivor + those-junk-sculpture-things-that-used-to-line-the-­Bay-when-you-were-driving-to-the-Bay-Bridge-in-­the-1970s + a mild Lord of the Flies = Adventure Playground. Meant for older kids, at least 7 years and up, this is what I witnessed: * Kids running around with saws (!!!) * A kid who dropped a hammer from a treehouse - luckily no one was below * A young boy dismantling a play structure with a hammer * A girl who face planted in a dirt mound after using the zipline However on the other side I saw: * No electronics! No one glued to their DS, Nintendo or anything. * Lots of running, swinging, climbing, exploring * Kids handling tools for the first time, learning how to work with wood * Paint! Kids encouraged to paint anything they wanted; grafitti as art * Working cooperatively with other kids, trying to construct sculptures, a bench, whatever you wanted with scrap wood * Freedom to be kids - no one telling them NOT to do something There are adults who do supervise this playground, but parent supervision is a must. Not the helicopter type who squirts hand sanitation gel every five seconds on their kids hands, but a parent who will kindly instruct a child how to hold a saw so they don't lose any digits. Located next to the marina, you get a lovely view of the bay and the windsurfers. Loved the outdoor pianos and the fact that my daughter was the rogue Hello Kitty grafitti artist extraordinaire for the afternoon!
