Bates PlaygroundTake your pick of 2 playgrounds, one in the back of the school and one in front.

The back one features a large play structure with 3 slides, plus a nearby 2-panel rock climbing wall, a handful of swings and a play car/truck. The nearby Wall of Hands is fun art to view as well. The playground adjoins the baseball fields at the school.

The playground in front of the school features a very large structure with a giant plastic fish in the middle of it. Included are a rope climb, rock climb, underground microphones, one of those things you grab overhead and slide across by holding up your body.

A 7-foot-high basketball hoop is next to the play structure. The ground is a spongy material. No outdoor restrooms. Benches for adults. Plenty of parking at the school.

(keep in mind that playgrounds on school grounds are generally off limits during school hours for non-students)
