This park is an ideal location for a family or friends get together.  Some of the amenities include baseball court, little league field, playground area, restrooms and a huge scenic area with lots of room to run around ( bring a ball or boccie ball to entertain all).   The playground is a nicely sized lot including two slides, monkey bars and other play areas.  Jefferson Manor Park also has a baseball field, basketball court, pavilion, grills, restrooms, picnic tables and benches.  The pavilion can be rented for just a small amount.  As a mom with two young kids,  I really enjoyed that the parking lot was at the bottom of the hill, off of the main road, making it convenient to let the little minds explore around the park.

The playground is a great size for a neighborhood park.  In addition to the swings, it has a couple of slides,  a  riding horse, a tic tac toe game as well as a little fire engine underneath.
