John Murphy Park is a community park run by the Stanislaus County Parks Department. It's a five acre park located behind Dena Boer Elementary school. The park has two side by side playgrounds, a basketball court, a shade shelter, and a volleyball court.
The two play areas are in sand and don't have any shade over them or near them. There is lots of grass to run around on and a fence separates the park from Murphy Rd which is a wide street so people drive fast there.
The play equipment was in great shape and my kids found lots of ways to entertain themselves on it. They especially liked the long slides and the climbing bridge.
Keep in mind that there aren't any real bathrooms at this park. Plan accordingly :-)
