Renovated and reopened in 2002, Douglass Playground has an excellent hillside location complete with trees and rock outcroppings on two levels. The lowest level includes a Clubhouse, children's play area, informal lawn areas and tennis courts. The upper level is heavily wooded and contains a baseball field. There are picnic tables, restrooms, and it is quite dog friendly!
