Poinsettia Community Park is a huge, newer park at 42 acres. It has so many amenities. There are 10 lighted tennis courts, enormous open grass fields, 3 lighted ball fields, a big synthetic turf multi-use field, 3 big parking lots, a play area, and 2 lighted basketball courts.
The easiest way to get to the play area is to enter the park and turn right. Follow the road around to past the tennis courts. This parking lot is for the play area, tennis courts, and multi-use field. It's great that there are bathrooms right next to the play area and parking lot.
The play area is set in sand, but the play structures are on raised rubberized turf. So both play structures are handicapped accessible. There's a tot play structure and an older kid play structure. We had fun playing on both structures.
I imagine during sports seasons and on weekends this park is filled. But it's so big with so much open space I don't think you'd feel crowded.
