Lower Manning Park

I recently realized that Manning Park has two play areas: Upper Manning and Lower Manning. I reviewed the upper playground which is great for toddlers, but not so interesting for big kids. Lower Manning is across the street and down the road from the lower park across from Montecito Union School (Google Maps). It has a climbing structure (with a wall, platform, ladder and rope),  swings, and 3 spinning toys (poles and wheel) over wood chips. It also has a volleyball area and baseball field.

It is very picturesque (there were nasturtiums blooming when we were there).
There are bathrooms at the far end of the field.
It is set back from the road, but close to the parking lot.
The climbing equiptment is unique and fun. 

There aren't many play items, so kids might get bored.
There is a creek nearby.
There aren't items for little kids.
