Dennis the Menace - El Estero Park Complex

US / California
Listed By: California Film Commission
Location ID: #050-10105896
This park is so fun for kids! There is a huge old Southern Pacific railroad engine at the entrance. After looking at it, next kids will run to try the rock climbing wall. Parents can relax happily on the little grassy hills under a tree. Kids can climb up a ramp and cross a huge bridge that sways from side to side. Stretched out below them are a series of playgrounds! They can slide down two huge wavy green slides on the hill and then run through cement tunnels. Some retro 70s-looking playground equipment makes for some unusual climbs. There's plenty of sand to run around in. A red roller slide under the yellow arch is a popular spot. On the far end, kids can peek through the fence to see Monterey Skate Park on Lake El Estero. Around the park are views of Lake El Estero and the white swan paddle boats that you can rent. It's a merry atmosphere, and you can thank Monterey resident and cartoonist Hank Ketchum, who designed the park!. Click here for additional info.
