More About Hynes Playground
At Hynes Playground, neighborhood sport organizations practice and play games at the soccer/baseball fields, while toddlers enjoy the two age-appropriate playgrounds with water spouts to keep cool during the hot summer months.
There is also a full court basketball hoop where adult pick up games are often played, as well as recreational league games. There is a second basketball court that is smaller, next to the main court.
There is also an asphalt path around the entire park for walking or biking. Dogs are welcome, but must be leashed.
