The park was recently renovated and the new equipment is a step up from what had been in the playground, but without any shade, it's a tough place to be most of the time.
The sandbox has become a big highlight of our trips, which is funny since the playground is just a few yards from a sandy swimming beach. The box is filled with forgotten sand toys like trucks and shovels and buckets.
There isn't much climbing equipment given the size of the area, but the slides are fun to go up and down. In season, there are plenty of kids to play with.
When I was here in early spring, local full-time residents were using it in the late afternoon and I got the inside scoop on Truro's excellent playground.
This playground is good for the area, but it actually is fairly basic and simple. An easy way to burn some toddler energy, but not much for older kids or a long play time.
Wiley Park is a 44 acre park with hiking trails and two swimming beaches around a kettle pond. Parking in season requires a beach permit or daily fee.
