The Phillips Street Play Area is a quieter, more adult-friendly playground than its neighbor up the hill, the Myrtle…More Street Playground. The play area is in the lower part of the park and features modern, jungle gym-like playground equipment set on top of rubber mats to absorb falls. The play area is surrounded by a low wall convenient for parents to sit on.
The upper park is a peaceful space with benches overlooking the play area. Pets are allowed in the upper part of the park only. It is maintained by the city's Parks and Recreation Department.
