Two playground areas complement Mary James Park — the newest is accessible to those with disabilities. Picnic tables alongside the small creek bisecting the park invite you to enjoy lunch, chat with friends or immerse yourself in a book. Bike racks are provided so pack up the kids and a lunch and venture over to enjoy this neighborhood oasis. Get together with friends for a game of tennis or practice some free throws on the basketball court.
