There are two play areas for children: one has slides, swings, monkey bars, and other things designed for younger kids while the other area has more challenges like rock climbing paths that are appropriate for older children. Along with these play areas, there is also a tennis court and two multi-purpose fields where soccer games happen regularly in the afternoons.

Paso Nogal Park is a huge expanse of green open space. It's perfect for taking a stroll, throwing the ball with your dog, or just sitting in the sun and reading a book. The park has been designated as an "environmentally sensitive area" because it features natural wetlands that are home to a variety of wildlife including turtles, snakes, and birds. There are also benches located near scenic areas so you can sit down and enjoy the view.

Paso Nogal Park is a great place to spend the day with your family. It has a lot of fun activities for kids and adults alike, including a playground with a jungle gym, an interactive fountain with water jets, and picnic tables in case you want to pack lunch.
