Fort LaPlay Porte playground at Kesling Park is a great place to take the kids; but if there is snow, be sure to bring the snow gear for the sledding hill!  The park offers 90 acres with modern facilities including four ball diamonds, six tennis courts, a walking and nature trail, soccer fields, picnic shelters, and a recently opened disc golf course.
